Seniors Vote!

Last week's primary election caused intense interest among our Chinese seniors who came together to exercise their right to vote. A workshop was held at CISC to educate them how to cast their ballots and make their voices heard.

Staff never instruct anyone to vote one way or another, but do walk through the ballot and explain any points of confusion and help clarify language when necessary, even though the ballots are printed in Chinese.

With the presidential election coming up in November, this was a good practice for all of us. So make sure you, your friends and family get engaged, register to vote, and cast your ballot on November 4!
