Persons with disabilities are a citizen group that has constitutional political rights. They are an inseparable part of the arrangement of Article 28D of the 1945 Constitution of the Republic of Indonesia. This study aims to analyze the active participation of persons with disabilities when they channel political rights in the implementation of the general election. This study is conducted as normative legal research. The conclusion showed that: 1) The state has accommodated the interests of persons with disabilities to participate in the general election process, both as organizers and as participants. 2) In its implementation, the settings are still dealing with various problems. For example, stigma in the community of people with disabilities where they are considered unable to bear the sovereignty and administration problems because many persons with disabilities do not have residential documents.
