Volunteers Help Hospital Patients Vote

0 Shares

LOS ANGELES (UPI) — More than 25 volunteers at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles are helping patients obtain absentee ballots so they can vote, hospital officials say.

Allison Rotter, volunteer services manager at Cedars-Sinai, says often patients end up in the hospital unexpectedly, or have been ill and may not have had time to obtain an absentee ballot. The volunteers will visit hundreds of patient rooms to ensure any registered voter can exercise their right to vote.

The volunteers will visit hundreds of patients next Monday — the day before Election Day — with necessary applications needed for absentee balloting.
