After he underwent hip surgery, David Salinas recovered at South Texas Rehabilitation Hospital in Brownsville.

Salinas wanted to vote in the November election, but he was scheduled to remain in the rehabilitation hospital until Nov. 10.

Concerned he wouldn't be able to cast a ballot, Salinas talked to his case manager.
