VOTING FROM THE STATE HOSPITALS

  • Can I vote if I am at one of the state psychiatric hospitals?
    Yes, you still may vote if you are in one of the state psychiatric hospitals.Please, ask your social worker about your hospital’s policies on voting. You should be able to register to vote, apply for an absentee ballot, and cast that ballot by mail. Your hospital may have other arrangements for you to vote.

     

  • What address do I use to register to vote?
    If you maintain a residence outside of the hospital, you can use that address as your physical residence on the registration form and the absentee ballot. You should use the hospital’s address as your current mailing address. If you do not have a residence outside of the hospital, you can use the hospital’s address as both the residence and mailing address. The hospital’s addresses and counties are listed below.If you are unsure or need assistance, please contact your social worker.
