LMH Health introduces VotER initiative

Autumn Bishop, LMH Health

LMH Health is one of a group of hospitals nationwide – and the only one in Kansas – to participate in VotER, an initiative offering patients and visitors the opportunity to register to vote. The deadline to register to vote in the 2020 general election is Tuesday, October 13.

The voluntary, non-partisan program was introduced to LMH Health by Kristin Salmans, president of the Lawrence/Douglas County League of Women Voters, and championed by Drs. Sherri Vaughn and Toni Reynolds.

You must have a smartphone to access VotER and can get connected by scanning a QR code on posters in the emergency department or texting “Vote LMH” to 34444. The voluntary, non-partisan program doesn’t endorse a particular party, candidates or political positions.

VotER originated at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital and is a partnership between the hospital’s emergency department and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. LMH Health is proud to be part of this initiative making it easier for people to register to vote, empowering folks and allowing their voices to be heard.


Autumn Bishop is the marketing communications manager for LMH Health.
