The results showed that the communication strategy used Banjar City Election Commission in collaboration with the Indonesian Disability Association (PPDI), was by holding a socialization event for people with disabilities, and providing the diffable-friendly polling station (TPS). However, there were some weaknesses found. The considerations have not been made on certain aspects such as the elderly voters with disabilities and the distance to the polling station. The collaboration with Special Schools (SLB) was also not done and the role of parents has not been established as a communicator. The constrains encountered were the limitations in conveying the information, making E-ID for first time voters and people with disabilities who do not have a ID. To overcome the obstacles, the commission established a cooperation with the Indonesian Disability Association (PPDI) of Banjar City and DISDUKCAPIL in making the E-ID.
