Mature Americans who reside in nursing homes face challenges when exercising their right to vote. Age-related issues present special circumstances that can make the process of voting for seniors confusing and hard. This creates scenarios where seniors rely on and trust others to help them vote. Unfortunately, these situations make conditions ripe for voter fraud.

AMAC Action and its coalition partner, the Election Integrity Network (EIN) work to protect the ballots and political voice of seniors both at home and especially in residential facilities. We encourage you to join a virtual workshop to learn how to protect vulnerable voters in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior independent living housing, and other care facilities from being exploited during each election cycle. These sessions are collaborative and interactive and include providing usable resource materials for attendees on every call.

Please click here to view workshop availability and to register for the session that best fits with your schedule. Feel free to contact Kerri Toloczko at [email protected] if you have any questions.

We hope you've enjoyed this article. While you're here, we have a small favor to ask...

I work at the Paulding OH Board of Elections and we sent bipartisan teams to our local Assisted living facilities to help each resident vote. I’m proud to have been a part of this effort to keep voting safe here in OH

This was a huge issue in the 2020 election, and it was exploited by bad players all across America.

Adult group homes for the mentally disabled should also be protected as they too are ripe for exploitation, threats, abuse, and fraud. The same also goes for therapeutic residence facilities which rehabilitate drug addicts, many of those places which are politically connected and often grovel at the feet of corrupt politicians for money and donations. Those in-pt rehabs are Samaritan Village, Daytop Village, Phoenix House and many others.

There was an instance of a group home resident telling of wanting to vote for George W. Bush and being threatened by a caretaker if he didn’t vote for John Kerry.

This is very needed in these facilities…many times the elderly are misinformed and intentionally misled in the information they receive. They need support, respect, and accurate factual information. Additionally, the exploitation must stop.
Best wishes in your endeavor on behalf of our seniors and protecting their vote.

Since I work, I will not be able to attend any of these workshops. Can you make at least ONE in the evening after 5pm?

Defrauding the vote and taking advantage of our vulnerable elderly voters is a serious concern. I registered for the workshop. Thank you for this information and opportunity to help protect our Seniors.

In 2020, I had a disabled Vietnam vet tenant that called in to see how he could vote. They checked, then told him he’d already voted! He tried to assure them he hadn’t, but how can you prove it? Thats just one I know about. How many others are there?

There is zero doubt in my mind that, if my in hospice 93 year old mother is still alive, that she will cast a vote however the nursing home wants her to vote. Given I am 1000 miles away and disabled myself there is absolutely nothing I can do.

No worries: My dad passed away in 2006 but I’m pretty sure he’s voted Democrat in every election since!
