Date:10/10/2008

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Oct. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 600 new Wisconsin voters can participate in the November presidential election. This is the result of Aurora Health Care's voter registration drives held on Thursday, Oct. 9, at all of the health care system's 13 hospitals across Eastern Wisconsin. A total of 658 people signed up to vote at the drives.

Aurora employees and volunteers, who were trained by the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board to serve as special registration deputies, were on hand in hospital lobbies to register voters in advance of the Nov. 4 election.

"We are delighted that so many people took the opportunity to register to vote," said Kimberly A. Welch, senior vice president of Corporate Affairs. "We know that crowds and long lines are expected at polling places across the state on Election Day, and we were happy to do our part to help lessen the pressure at the polls.

"Also, being a not-for profit organization, voter registration aligns with our mission to contribute to the overall welfare of the communities we serve," Welch said. "We are pleased that everybody who registered can now participate in our democratic process."

Additionally, 25 Aurora employees have volunteered, at the request of Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett, to serve as poll workers at voting sites in the City of Milwaukee on Nov. 4.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of health care. Aurora offers care at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin.
