Democracy in action

My dad loves to vote. He once paid to take a taxi just so he could vote in a local school election. He was very disappointed that he couldn’t vote in Michigan’s last gubenatorial race, so we worked hard on getting him registered in Kalamazoo township, where his nursing home is. Well, mostly this was done by Amy, the social worker at his nursing home, Tendercare of Westwood.

In turns out that it’s a school election that will be Dad’s first Kalamazoo-area vote. The township clerk has promised to come directly to the nursing home to collect his vote, and any others of people who can’t get out.
