October 2, 2008 — The University of Virginia's Institute on Aging will host a conference focusing on the problems and issues of voting by seniors in nursing homes and assisted-living facilities. This conference will be held Friday, Oct. 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Caplin Auditorium at the U.Va. School of Law.
The conference will bring together leaders from several fields to review the challenges faced by individuals with cognitive and physical impairments and to recommend policies and procedures that can maximize voter participation while avoiding fraud and exploitation of this vulnerable population. The goal: Find a way to facilitate voting rights for the elderly in Virginia that can serve as a national model for improving the voting system.
