Make Your Vote Count!

Updated: Jul 2, 2023

Over the years, as a politically savvy nurse lobbying for state level healthcare reform, trying to encourage my colleagues to vote.... this is what I would hear:

  • It won’t make any difference

  • I only vote during presidential elections

  • I don’t belong to a party

  • I have never voted...why start now

  • Politics is corrupt

  • I only vote for Women

So why vote?

· If you don’t vote, you’re letting others decide who wins and what issues matter.

· Communities that vote get more attention from candidates and office holders.

· When we vote and get our family members to vote, we can impact outcomes and

change the debate.

Up to the 2022 Midterms I plan to provide links with a quick overview some of the many websites on the Internet that can assist you in making informed votes.

These sites will help you:

  • Identify your state and federal legislators

  • get a better understanding about candidates positions·

  • learn the ins and outs on voting

The first web site is called Vote Smart-Facts Matter

"Their mission is to provide free, factual, unbiased information on candidates and elected officials to ALL Americans" [directly quoted from their site].

This site is packed with a lot of information about political candidates such as their positions, key votes, finances, and more. It also has a new feature that allows you to compare multiple candidates side by side.

When deciding Who Should I Vote for? Go to a website packed with voting resources, US legislator voting records, plus current Congress/Senate election ballots to help Americans to cast informed votes that make a difference.
