Help RPCVs Vote Initiative

RPCVs to Vote election button

RPCV Health Crusade recognizes that disabilities and other health challenges can significantly add to the burden of getting to the polls or ballot drop-off locations. So we launched the Help RPCVs Vote Initiative to help remove some of the hurdles.

We worked hard to locate or arrange for options on free or low cost ways to safely get to the polls. Many of the located codes or options are available to all RPCVs as well as their friends and families.

We will try to notate any codes specifically for people with disabilities or medical needs. Please help protect these options by not misusing them.

Read more about how our support program evolved to include our new Help RPCVs Vote Initiative. Be sure to validate any of the listed options below before participating.
