Voting in pretrial detention and nursing homes
On March 28, Chicago Lawyers' Committee volunteers collaborated with the Cook County Clerk's Office and Cook County Department of Corrections to deliver ballots to voters in pretrial detention at Cook County Jail. Many individuals voted that day, and personnel from Chicago Lawyers’ Committee enjoyed the opportunity to serve as volunteer election judges and as non-partisan poll watchers. Thank you to the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law for your partnership on this initiative!
Chicago Lawyers' Committee will continue protecting the rights of voters in pretrial detention, nursing homes, and other vulnerable communities and ensuring that all eligible citizens have the right to vote.
