Election defined as an activity which is considered as a form or parameter of a democratic country. However, the implementation of election is full of problems, namely the lack of participation of people with disabilities and even it tends to be mobilized in the 2019 election in Riau Province. This study used the approach of democratic theory and political participation as well as qualitative methodology through analysis of ethical and emic interpretation data so that this study explained the political participation of people with disability (feebleminded) was still below the political percentage of Riau community which was 45% and was merely procedural and even not independent. This was because there was no special mechanism for them to participate in the election which then had implication on the neglected voting right
