FRA presents preliminary results of political participation of persons with disabilities project

On 28 February, FRA will present preliminary results of its project on the political participation of persons with disabilities at the Zero Project Conference in Vienna.

FRA will host a workshop on breaking down voting barriers for persons with disabilities, during which the Agency will draw on its recent research to highlight some of the hurdles persons with disabilities can face when trying to exercise their right to vote. FRA’s findings will be complemented by presentations from the International Foundation for Electoral Systems on its handbook for promoting political participation of persons with disabilities, as well as personal testimony from a member of the Interparliamentary Union.
