We’re seeing monumental efforts to get out the vote--from letter-writing campaigns and big-name music concerts, to viral social media campaigns and more. But don’t forget about … the funeral directors. Dr. Hari P. Close, who owns a Hari P. Close Funeral Service in northeast Baltimore, tells us about “Limos to the Polls." It’s a nationwide endeavor by funeral directors to provide rides to voting centers for seniors and others who need help. Close emphasizes that the service is free and is non-partisan.

Plus, Philip Kahn-Pauli from RespectAbility describes how the needs of people with disabilities are being addressed at the polls, and in the polls.
