HOMELESS PERSPECTIVE LIVE: Breaking News

Part One

Host: Tim Houchen
September 22, 2020 —


This is the first article in a series titled,”It’s Our Time, Our Voice: California Homeless Votes Count 2020.” This series of articles is dedicated to the 2020 General Election and how it relates to persons experiencing homelessness in California. This first article identifies the barriers that have disenfranchised homeless voters in the past and simplifies voter registration in 2020 using information from the Secretary of State’s website. Next topics include ways that homeless advocates and volunteers can assist and support homeless voters, voter education of candidates and ballot measures that affect the homeless, and spotlights on candidates throughout the state that are homeless or have personal experience with homelessness.


This video is one of two live broadcasts that took place on Tuesday September 22, 2020. Both were hosted by Tim Houchen, publisher of HomelessPerspective.com. HOMELESS PERSPECTIVE LIVE is publishing a series of live broadcasts and written articles dedicated to the 2020 General Election and how the election relates to persons experiencing homelessness in California.

The series is titled, “It’s Our Time, Our Voice: California Homeless Votes Count 2020.” The first article in the series, Can Persons Experiencing Homelessness Vote?, was on Monday and is followed-up by two live broadcasts that split the content.

Suggestions are given to work around the obstacles to voting using simplified instructions and information coming from the California Secretary of State’s website.

Part One features information on the history of disenfranchisement in the U.S., election deadlines and dates, the requirements of voter registration, the different ways to register, types of I.D. necessary to register and vote, how to register if you are homeless, and how a homeless person can still vote without an I.D. Part
