You can still VOTE

 

 

When you entered the long term care facility, nursing home, or assisted living facility, you gave up a lot of things.  One of the things that you can still do is VOTE.

 

    • Even though you may not be able to hold a pen, you can still cast a ballot
    • Even though you may not be able to speak, your choice can still be heard
    • Even though you may not be able to walk, you can still go to the polls

 

Your opinion counts. 

MISSION STATEMENT:  Help the citizens of Harris County, Texas, who are living in long term care facilities, to cast a ballot in November 2008, and subsequent general elections.

 

OVERVIEW:  In Harris County, there are approximately 9000 citizens that are residents in Long Term Care facilities (nursing homes, group homes and assisted living facilities).  As our population ages, this number will continue to rise.

 

Approximately 25% of all Long Term Care facilities in the State of Texas are located in and around Houston.

 

Experience during the 2004 and 2006 general elections, showed that there are no consistent policies or procedures for the resident, family or facility, to handle election ballots for this population.

 

OBJECTIVE:

 

1.      Identify the special needs of this population regarding registering to vote and casting a ballot.

2.      Educate the residents, the facility staff, family members or responsible parties, and election officials regarding these special needs.

3.      Provide a “Suggested Best Practices” document that defines a method for assisting this population to register and cast their ballots.

4.      “Spread the word” through various not-for-profit organizations such as the United Way, League of Women Voters, AARP and others that serve the senior community.

 

PROJECT TEAM:

 

The residents of a Long Term Care facility have very little control over their daily lives.  They depend on the facility staff, family members, government agencies and community organizations to help them.

 

The Project Team is being organized through the Long Term Care Ombudsman organization.  This is a group of staff and volunteers that advocate for residents in Long Term Care facilities.

 

To develop a meaningful and workable solution, the Project Team should include individuals who can express the views of the facility staff, family members, government agencies and community agencies.  The team should include, but not be restricted to, representatives from:

 

1.      Long Term Care Ombudsman Program

2.      Harris County Tax Office Voter Registration Office

3.      Harris County Clerk Elections Office

4.      Long Term Care Facility staff

5.      Long Term Care Family Council

6.      League of Women Voters, United Way, and other not-for-profit agencies

7.      State Regulatory Commission
