This manual discusses the rights of people who are homeless to vote. The authors assert that under the United States Constitution, every American citizen has the right to vote. The fact that people who are homeless have no permanent residence should not be used to disenfranchise them. Many homeless people, however, while qualified to vote, are unable to register due to the many policy and legal barriers placed before them. The manual outlines tips for conducting effective voter registration campaigns, media tips, commonly asked questions, and voter registration by social service agencies. Topics also covered by the authors are letter writing to candidates; having candidates volunteer at agencies; state by state breakdown of homeless voting registration laws; and dealing with non profits.
