But what if you get sick and end up in the hospital?
Cleaver said regardless of where you live, patients should “call your local election office. That is actually the only thing you can and should do.”
It appears just a few hospitals around the country including Meritus Medical Center in Maryland and Sutter Health’s hospitals in northern California have programs for patients.
Cambridge Health Alliance Psychiatry resident Jennifer Okwerekwu — who plans to help patients in Boston tomorrow – would like to see that change.
“It’s not something that we think about very often,” she said.
“So nobody really knows how to execute this procedure.”
Okwerekwu said part of delivering health means seeing patients as the full person they are and helping them exercise their constitutional right to vote.
