Some homeless residents at Grace Marketplace are choosing not to vote because they dislike politics while others have lost the right to vote because of felony convictions. Those who want to vote can list “shelter” as their address for voter registration. However, some people missed the opportunity to vote waiting for their voter registration cards to arrive in the mail.
