My name is Stephen. I am 20 years old. I am an American citizen. I also have a disability. Earlier this year, I was at risk of losing the right to vote. Just because I have a disability. With help from Dr. Nora Baladerian and attorney Tom Coleman, I was able to keep the right to vote. But other people with disabilities were not so lucky. They had their right to vote taken away by judges in the Los Angeles Superior Court. I hope that Attorney General Eric Holder makes the judges give the right to vote back to these Americans. Mr. Holder, if you read or learn about my statement, I am asking you to please help people with disabilities keep our right to vote. We want to participate in our democracy, not be excluded.2
