Nurses Lisa Schavrien and Erin Ainslie Smith wanted their patients’ voices to be heard on Election Day, even if they were unable to physically leave the hospital. So the two Lenox Hill nurses, along with a 20-person volunteer group, came together to help patients cast their vote this past Tuesday, according to the New York Post. 

The volunteers headed into New York’s five boroughs to submit the applications, retrieve ballots, and bring them back to the hospital. After distributing the ballots, the volunteer team ran back to the boroughs to submit patients’ votes before the polls closed.
