Ever wonder about the voting rights of people with cognitive disorders? Do you have some input as to why/why not this target population should be permitted to exercise their constitutional voting rights? This study is asking for input.

So I do get to vote? Sorry, you know me! Silly me, I had never even considered this issue before. May I continue to rely on you as my social conscience? Pretty please, you are so good at it...

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

LOL, Larry, I was wondering if they were trying to stop ME from voting. LOL, yanno, I am just a bit off center.
OK, so does this mean you might offer these people some valuable feedback? There are really so many angles to this issue. Who do you 'trust' to make the assessment?
Anyway, hope lots of knowledgeable/caring writers will send much needed input.

LOL, that's PART of the point for this'un Raph. There is quite a bit of evidence that in some cases, relatives and/or 'caregivers' are actually doing the voting, not just 'assisting' the registered voter. And that means the 'counted' vote could go either way, now, couldn't it? *sigh* I hope YOU also participate in studies like this, m'friend, in a non-partisan way of course.
