Signature HealthCARE Promotes Civic Life
Louisville, Ky. – June 25, 2018 – Over 500 residents and community members across Signature HealthCARE recently registered to vote and sat down for conversations with lawmakers and political candidates. It’s all part of Signature’s effort to engage residents in civic life and empower them to vote, no matter their physical limitations.
“It’s important that our residents are empowered to raise their voices and have the opportunity to vote,” Kathy Gallin, Signature’s Director of Legislative Affairs, said. “Our residents created businesses, served in the military, raised children, contributed to their local communities and more. Their civic voices are vital to our communities and our nation’s political life.”
The theme of voter promotion month inspired some residents to get more involved in either political life or community life at their center.
