Healthcare professionals help increase voter registration through outreach

Through the Vot-ER program, doctors, nurses, and other health care staff speak to their patients about registering to vote and provide important election information, even wearing badges with QR codes that patients can scan to access online voting resources. Since 2020, the initiative has helped more than 66,000 people register to vote or request a mail-in ballot, and more than 500 hospitals, clinics, and centers have participated.
