The central mission of Health Care for the Homeless projects are to empower those experiencing homelessness and few endeavors are more empowering than participating in the democratic process by casting your own vote. This session will be a facilitated discussion with a brief history of voting rights and an overview of state laws regarding voter registration deadlines, residency, and identification requirements. This workshop will answer frequently asked questions on registering people experiencing homelessness to vote, including legal issues and voter rights, and how to incorporate voter registration into your clinic’s operations.
