Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia installed online voter registration kiosks in its emergency department this month to help boost the number of registered voters in the state, reports Philly Mag.
Hospital patients, visitors or employees can use the kiosks to check their registration status and register to vote.
At present, about 12 percent of eligible voters in Pennsylvania are not registered to vote. Many of these individuals come from underserved populations and often face various socioeconomic challenges that are directly affected by public policy. As a result of these challenges, many unregistered voters end up in Einstein Medical Center's ED.
The kiosks are part of an initiative called VotER, which was first launched at Boston-based Massachusetts General Hospital last year. The initiative stems from a partnership between the hospital, Cambridge-based Harvard Kennedy School, a nonprofit called Turbovote and the behavioral sciences company Ideas42.
So far, Einstein Medical Center is among only a handful of hospitals in the country to install the kiosks.
Wonder who drew the registration duty in the morgue?
Ten bucks says this ER has a very similar profile.
So it's pretty obvious what can go wrong...particularly in a large swing state like PA.
They could’ve spent that money on medicines or staff. Just another vote buying scheme.
Underserved communities = Illegal aliens.
GEEZE guess where illegals go for their medical care, illegals are voting in DROVES in CA. it works here so why not spread it across the country NO ONE does a damn thing about it NO ONE!!!
Station an ICE agent right next to it.
And never ask for money.
One catch she can only vote Democrat!
That’s ok if the patient is unconscious or recently deceased. They’ll sign him up anyway.
Isn’t Philly where 100+% voted for obamy?
Philadelphia already has a 105% turnout.
Perfect! If you’re badly injured and might die, sign up right away and don’t forget to tell those close to you.
... after they found out everyone in the psycho ward was already a registered Demonicrat.
Even before they got there!
My God,they are pulling out all to get votes for 2020. Our side is always slow to react. We may get blind sided overall in 2020.
North Philly is Blacks and PR’s.
Better than that
Mr. Jackson. You’ve been shot in the gut and bleeding out. There are 2 surgeries I can perform. 1. Might help you live at 30% chance. Or 2. Vote Democrap right now in an absentee vote and your chances go up to 75%
