Abstract
This project develops and tests a multimedia software application to provide an independently usable format for improving knowledge of voting and election processes for persons with intellectual disabilities. During Phase I, a prototype is developed and evaluated to determine the feasibility of the approach for providing an independent, self-paced, self-directed format allowing students with intellectual disabilities to measurably improve knowledge of the voting and electoral process. The software is designed to provide easy-to-understand education materials and a simulated voting experience for people with intellectual disabilities with the goal of improving the frequency of voting for people within the target population.
