Seniors voting from the comfort of home

Posted: Updated:

Several precinct workers are traveling around to senior care centers and bringing ballots along with them.

Residents at Summit Pointe Senior Living Facility are casting their votes today by simply making their way down the hall. 

"We don't have to go and worry about getting to a voting place, and this is so handy we can even sit down," says Alice Marks.

Precinct workers say it will take them about two weeks to make their way to every senior care center that has requested ballots, making sure everyone gets their say.

"Since I was able to vote, it's very important for me never to miss a chance to vote," says Millie Scheel.

Residents are truly thankful to vote from the luxury of their own home.

"Very very convenient for me yes," Scheel says.
