Elderly Voters: Information on Promising Practices Could Strengthen the Integrity of the Voting Process in Long-Term Care Facilities
Barbara D. Bovbjerg (au); William O. Jenkins, Jr. (au)
Voting is fundamental to the U.S. democratic system and federal law provides broad protections for people with disabilities, including older voters. Many long-term care facility residents, who often have physical or cognitive impairments, vote by absentee or early ballot. Concerns have been raised about the extent to which states and localities are helping the increasing number of facility residents exercise their right to vote, especially those requiring voting assistance, who may be subject to undue influence or unauthorized completion of their ballot by facility staff or relatives. Given these concerns, this report identified the actions taken to facilitate and protect voting for long-term care facility residents at: (1) the state level; and (2) the local level.
