With the deadline to register to vote rapidly approaching on August 17, the state primary election just around the corner (September 6), and the state’s general elections not far past that (November 6), the Home Care Alliance is encouraging its member agencies across the state to help “get out the vote.”
The Alliance has a fact sheet with instructions and a sample press release (available upon request) for those agencies willing and interested in helping their homebound patients obtain absentee ballots so they can vote in the upcoming elections. With important policy issues looming, this program is a great way to mobilize a population that may not otherwise have the chance to have their voices heard.
For those interested in obtaining the sample press release, contact James Fuccione at the Alliance.
