In Boston, an ER doctor has created thousands of voter registration kits for distribution at hospitals and doctor's offices.

Students at Harvard and Yale’s medical schools are planning to go head-to-head as part of a national voter registration competition among medical schools.

And, a Rhode Island doctor has launched an effort to provide hospital patients emergency ballots.

Organizers say the wide-ranging efforts are crucial because voter registration is down in many states because of the coronavirus pandemic.
