Bazelon guide on voting rights for people with mental disabilities: People with mental disabilities are often disenfranchised by unwarranted concerns about their competence to vote, inappropriate challenges to prevent them from voting, refusals to provide or permit help with voting, and help that disregards the voter's own choices. A 68-page booklet produced by the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law in collaboration with the National Disability Rights Network explains the rights of voters with mental disabilities. The text focuses on four areas of concern: voter competence requirements imposed by state laws, election officials, or service providers; state photo-ID laws; voter challenges; and provision of help to voters with disabilities. For example, the guide clearly explains that a voter with disabilities can bring a person to the polls to provide help in voting or the voter may ask a poll worker for help. People who may not assist a voter are the voter's employer or an agent of that employer; if the voter is a member of a union, help may not be provided by a union officer or an agent of the union. For voters who encounter problems, a toll-free number (866-OUR-VOTE) is provided. A chart listing each state's laws on voter competence requirements is included. The booklet is designed as a resource for people with mental disabilities, family members, service providers, election officials, state and local mental health and aging authorities, and state legislators. Vote. It's Your Right is available on the Bazelon Center Web site at www. bazelon.org.
