Program Description


“Homebound seniors and disabled Americans are unable to travel to voting stations so we must bring the vote home.”

The movement aims to empower caregivers and all members of the home-based care community to help seniors participate in the election through:

  • Information distribution.
  • Voter registration forms.
  • Absentee ballots to be applied for and then mailed back as a ballot.

The following do’s and don’ts when helping seniors to vote are stated on the Bring the Vote Home website:

DO NOT:
•Recommend, endorse, or encourage support for one candidate or party over another.
•Tell the people you’re registering which party to register under or who to vote for.

•Target your registration efforts toward any particular ideological group, party, or issue.

DO:

request an absentee ballot.
•Explain and emphasize the importance of voting and how easily it can be done from home.
