Are You Registered For #CripTheVote?

July 23rd—15 candidates for Oklahoma State Legislature gathered to meet Oklahomans with disabilities and their families. They were given the opportunity to explain their positions on the issues that matter to people with disabilities. And considering the state of Oklahoma’s disability programs, it was a topic that interests our entire community and the nation.

The budget crisis that we just narrowly avoided could have seen up to 25 percent of our state’s Medicaid funding dropped. This crisis was narrowly averted through shuffling the budget, but that only increased cuts on programs like Oklahoma’s disabilities services. This leaves the members of Oklahoma’s disability community at a financial tipping point. But not everyone is sitting by contentedly while the government seemingly abandons its citizens with disabilities.

Election season is fast approaching, and advocacy groups all over the nation are mobilizing. The American Association of People with Disabilities, Crip the Vote, and REV UP are all fighting to get more people with disabilities registered and voting. It is estimated that there are over 30 million people with disabilities who are eligible to vote. If theses advocates are successful, then real change could be brought to both our state and national governments. But first, more people have to hear the call.

Advocate Anastasia Somoza recently spoke regarding the rights of people with disabilities. She insisted that the community is not invisible, and that we must raise our voices to make sure the 56 million Americans with disabilities do not go unheard. That means that people with disabilities, their families, and their friends need to let their voices be heard at the poles. It’s time to #CripTheVote and make sure disability issues are recognized by our leaders!

A message brought to you by the disability attorneys at Troutman & Troutman—let’s make the country more accessible for everyone!


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    - Billy S.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.

    Erin and Keith were fabulous! They were compassionate, helpful, and very responsive! They made the process very smooth and painless every step of the way.
