Voting Options in Assisted Living

Ask your community how they plan to ensure your right to vote.

Long-Term care facilities must work with their residents to ensure they can vote.  Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) suggest the following resources. 

  1. Absentee voting 
  2. Facilitate mobile polling 
  3. Transportation to polling centers 
  4. Assistance by a representative of your choice to complete your ballot.
  5. Ask your community administrator or ombudsman for the plan in your community.
