Seniors and Voting

Is your senior voting?
Is your senior voting in this election?

Over the weekend, Grandma waits until the weekend to ask me about how to go about filing an absentee ballot. I told her that the deadline probably passed to file, but she still insisted that I go ahead and research it anyway.

I did a search for my state’s absentee ballot  and sure enough, I did and the deadline was a month ago.

Last year, I escorted her to the voting place, so she was able to vote.

My advice, if your responsible for an elder, and as soon as you hear the word “election”, file an absentee ballot, even if the elder is in OK health, because you  never know.
