REGISTRATION

 

 

 

Voting is a core part of our democracy, though we know millions of Americans face significant obstacles when registering to vote and actually casting their ballots. As healthcare providers, we have a duty to our patients to help overcome these barriers. The health of our democracy depends on the ability of ALL people to vote. Voting is key to achieving a health equitable country.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nonpartisan, in-person voter registration drives are common at healthcare clinics and hospitals throughout the country. However, with the shift to telehealth given the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s less opportunity for this type of patient voter registration.

 

Doctors For A Healthy US, LLC, is piloting a patient portal communication & telehealth voter registration system for patients at a publicly funded hospital in the United States. Stay tuned, as we’ll soon be rolling this model out to clinics and hospital systems throughout the country!
