We Must Protect the Voting Rights of Our Elderly
WHY WE CARE
American Constitutional Rights Union deeply honors and appreciates America’s seniors for the positive influence and tremendous sacrifices they have made to ensure the safety and security of our nation at home and abroad. With our Protect Elderly Votes project, we hope to repay that debt, at least in part, by enhancing the security of senior votes.
We celebrate our patriotic seniors and the invaluable contributions they have made to the financial strength and fundamental freedoms we enjoy as Americans. In turn, we must take every action to ensure the integrity and intent of our seniors’ political choices at a time when they are at risk to be targets of vote fraud. Americans under 65 must demonstrate their gratitude for the continued guidance of our treasured seniors by protecting their votes.The Hon. J. Kenneth Blackwell, Former Secretary of State for Ohio, ACRU Action Board of Directors
“It is most often the poor and the elderly who lose their votes to the ballot harvesters.”
“There wasn’t a signature. There was just an ‘X’. She was either coerced or someone else put an x for her name.”
“Florida law has failed to keep up with the growing popularity of mail-in voting, leaving candidates and campaigns free to manipulate voters — even to the point of helping them fill out their ballots, a Palm Beach Post investigation found.”
SENIOR CITIZEN VOTER BILL OF RIGHTS
Voting is a cherished and precious right for all Americans — the American Constitutional Rights Union has been fighting for free and fair elections for decades. Now, we must turn our efforts to protect and preserve the right to secure voting for our senior citizens.
For a variety of reasons, senior citizens may face voting challenges. Transportation hurdles, technology advances, mobility issues, and other aging-related factors can make it difficult for seniors to vote in person or via absentee ballots. Often, due to living arrangements in assisted care facilities, seniors must trust and rely on others for voting assistance. Sadly, these conditions make fraud more likely.
We must do everything in our power to make sure the votes of our senior citizens are protected and counted fairly. This Senior Citizen Voter Bill of Rights outlines what our senior citizens can and should expect from our election systems — an environment respecting the voting choices of our citizens while making it easy to vote and hard to cheat.
