It's 2020. Welcome to

Patient Voting

We are an a non-partisan organization to increase voter turnout amongst people who are unexpectedly hospitalized in the days and weeks prior to the presidential election on November 3, 2020.

In most states, patients are able to vote from your hospital bed through emergency absentee ballots. We are creating a nation-wide network of healthcare workers and non-medical individuals dedicated to making sure this happens if they are interested, and making this process as easy as possible so that they can focus on their health and recovery.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

"Doctors today don’t necessarily have to be stacking gurneys in the streets, but we do have to recognize that the health of the community is part of our medical mission. Civic engagement is integral to that. When our patients ask what they can do to improve their health, in addition to sunscreen, exercise and five servings of fruits and vegetables, we should advise voting.

This is one prescription that doesn’t require prior authorization from the insurance company."

 

—  Dr. Ofri, New York Times
