MGH staff, patients and visitors turned out to participate in National Voter Registration Day on Sept. 25, visiting information tables at the main campus, Assembly Row and the MGH Chelsea HealthCare Center. More than 200 people registered to vote in Massachusetts at the events and hundreds more stopped by to pick up an “MGH Votes” pin, educational materials and to pose for pictures to share their support of the program and their pledge to vote.

Sponsored by the Physicians for Policy Action, the Mass General Physicians Organization, and Nursing and Patient Care Services, the MGH Votes initiative will continue throughout the month, with registration events taking place in several departments and at:

  • MGH Charlestown HealthCare Center: Oct. 10 from 3 to 7 pm, Oct. 11 from noon to 4 pm and Oct. 12 from 7:30 to 10 am
  • MGH Revere HealthCare Center: Oct. 15 from 9 am to 3 pm

The deadline to register to vote in Massachusetts is Oct. 17.
