Hospital patients vote from their rooms in mid-term election

DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Just because you're in the hospital doesn't mean you can't vote.
A Davenport man voted from his hospital bed at Genesis Hospital Tuesday.

Francis Fuhs says he always tries to vote, especially since he has been a poll worker. But an unexpected extension to his hospital stay meant it might not happen.

Fortunately, Fuhs was one of several patients who got to vote from their hospital rooms on Tuesday.

Genesis says Scott County Auditor Roxanna Moritz and volunteers helped make it happen.
