Moore explained that he felt excited when he got the call for his new heart, but he was uneasy with the possibility of not getting his vote counted.

Cedars-Sinai has a Volunteer Services Department that arranges for patients who reside in L.A. County and are registered to vote to receive ballots and process them on Election Day.

"In every election, we work to help our patients have their voices heard and their votes be counted," says director of Volunteer Services, Camille Camello.

Moore called it a "great moment" to exercise his right to vote.
