In recent elections, Kentucky has had the distinction of being one of the hardest states to vote in. For people with a disability (17.3% of the population), casting a ballot has been especially tough. In 2016, Kentucky had the lowest level of voter turnout among people with disabilities as well as the largest turnout gap, the difference in turnout among those with and without disabilities. Both of these numbers were worse than they had been in 2012.
