The Center for Vulnerable Voters offers resources, information, and training to protect the most vulnerable voters in the U.S.

Voting is a fundamental right for American citizens. Unfortunately, not all Americans are able to participate equally in the voting process.  Many citizens find their votes are at risk of not being counted or, in the worst case, subject to fraud.

The Center focuses on:

  • Enabling vulnerable voting constituencies to protect their vote and exercise their civic right to participate in America’s election process.
  • Educating citizens to actively participate in protecting both the voter and their vote.
  • Ensuring election officials, poll watchers and poll workers understand how to protect the integrity of all votes.
  • Training and educating residential facility staff in how to protect the voting rights of their most vulnerable residents.
  • Educating the general public on the legal ramifications of vote fraud against vulnerable voters.

Case Studies

Illinois Group Home Voting

Linda is an Occupational Therapist by trade. In her profession, she frequently provides care services to residents of assisted living and group homes.

In November of 2022, Linda visited two different group homes in a small Illinois City along the Mississippi. Her objective was to learn more about actual election practices in group homes and later to assist facilities with knowledge and processes to properly adhere to state laws.

The following report offers a summary of her in-person interviews.


Someone Stole Mom’s Vote!

ACRU CEO Lori Roman recently wrote this article for AMAC Magazine. Read on for details on how the votes of our most vulnerable citizens are being hijacked without their knowledge or consent.

“I felt like I had been punched in the gut!” Mary was shocked to see that her mom had “voted” in the November 2020 election. As her guardian, Mary had not changed her mom’s voter registration when she moved her to a new county because, of course, nonverbal dementia patients are unable to vote. She also knew that her mom was unable to fill out a request for a mail-in ballot and had no idea of the name of the current president. She immediately called her sister and said, ‘Someone stole Mom’s vote!’”
