HSHS Central Illinois is working with local county clerks’ offices to help hospitalized patients vote. Participating location include HSHS St. John’s in Springfield, St. Mary’s in Decatur, St. Francis in Litchfield, and Good Shepherd in Shelbyville. Erica Johnson, Communications Manager for the HSHS Central Illinois Division Hospitals, says they want to give patients opportunity to exercise their right to vote.
This will be the first election season that HSHS is providing this service since it is state law that patients have the opportunity to vote.
If a patient, or family member has any questions, they are encouraged to reach out to their local county clerk’s office.
