America’s seniors have made tremendous sacrifices to help ensure the safety and security of our nation at home and abroad. It is critical that we repay this debt by enhancing the security of senior votes.
The Center for Vulnerable Voters is focused on combating vote theft and suppression among the elderly and ensuring the constitutional voting rights of our seniors are protected.
“It is most often the poor and the elderly who lose their votes to the ballot harvesters.”

“There wasn’t a signature. There was just an ‘X’. She was either coerced or someone else put an x for her name.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer, November 3, 2017
“Florida law has failed to keep up with the growing popularity of mail-in voting, leaving candidates and campaigns free to manipulate voters — even to the point of helping them fill out their ballots, a Palm Beach Post investigation found.”
Palm Beach Post, March 11, 2017
We celebrate our patriotic seniors and the invaluable contributions they have made to the financial strength and fundamental freedoms we enjoy as Americans. In turn, we must take every action to ensure the integrity and intent of our seniors’ political choices at a time when they are at risk to be targets of vote fraud. Americans under 65 must demonstrate their gratitude for the continued guidance of our treasured seniors by protecting their votes.
The Hon. J. Kenneth Blackwell, Former Secretary of State for Ohio, ACRU Action Board of Directors
Voting is a cherished and precious right for all Americans — the American Constitutional Rights Union has been fighting for free and fair elections for decades. Now, we must turn our efforts to protect and preserve the right to secure voting for our senior citizens.
For a variety of reasons, senior citizens may face voting challenges. Transportation hurdles, technology advances, mobility issues, and other aging-related factors can make it difficult for seniors to vote in person or via absentee ballots. Often, due to living arrangements in assisted care facilities, seniors must trust and rely on others for voting assistance. Sadly, these conditions make fraud more likely.
We must do everything in our power to make sure the votes of our senior citizens are protected and counted fairly.
