If you are a long stay patient at a care home or a patient unexpectedly admitted to a hospital, you are still eligible to vote. To ensure the security and integrity of election related activities at care facilities, staff members are discouraged from participating directly with a voter in the process of registering and/or voting absentee. Staff may assist only upon receiving specific authorization from the resident (voter). When asked by a voter to render assistance, care facility staff must remain nonpartisan and have at least two people NOT of the same political party present.

Employers must grant employees two hours to vote, unless polls are open 2 consecutive hours before or after regular working shift. This time is paid, with proof that the vote has been cast.
