Voting rights for older adults with cognitive problems

IPPP fellow Andrew Peterson, with colleagues from the University of Pennsylvania, publish a new editorial in The Hill on voting rights for older adults with cognitive problems. They outline three recommendations to improve the voting process:

  1. Bring the polls to older adults.

  2. Challenge misconceptions about older adults voting.

  3. Do not manipulate older adults’ views or ballots.

The article highlights voting rights recommendations developed by the Penn Memory Center and the American Bar Association Commission on Law and Aging. Andrew Peterson is an affiliate researcher at the Penn Memory Center and contributed to the development of these recommendations.
