One year out from the 2016 general elections, Bring The Vote Home has released the results of new polling data, which surveyed more than 2,000 registered voters over age 65.
This polling data revealed that American seniors want a candidate who will be an advocate for them on issues specific to those over 65, including healthcare. The poll also concluded that individual states have room to improve helping seniors cast their vote, with only four in 10 seniors indicating their state does a good job educating homebound seniors on how to register or obtain an absentee ballot.
For this reason, Bring The Vote Home has also launch a brand new website to offer seniors, disabled Americans, and their healthcare clinicians the information they need to register to vote and receive an absentee ballot!
Bring The Vote Home was originally developed so that Medicare home health patients (who are homebound) could fully participate in the democratic process. BTVH has expanded to offer additional resources, including information about their lawmakers’ views on home health and senior polling data on the views and opinions of American seniors.
