Why I vote: Linda Wojtowicz

Welcome to our new series to highlight why our friends and colleagues vote.

Linda Wojtowicz, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations Officer, Tucson Medical Center

“I vote because I know I can make a difference,” says Linda. “If 100 people say they don’t make a difference and they don’t show up on Election Day, it could have a profound effect on the outcome.”

“I care about immigration,” says Linda. “I personally became very involved in this topic when I came from Chicago to Sierra Vista. In Sierra Vista, I was involved with the Mexican consulate routinely on issues and it has had a profound effect on my beliefs.”

“If you don’t vote you should never voice your frustration with politics or the various issues that weigh so heavily on so many. Never,” she said. “Now listen: I know you are frustrated so VOTE!”

For more information about this year’s elections, a wide coalition of Arizona medical associations came together to build a non-partisan website focused on health care issues, including voting records and more.  Check it out at www.azvoteforhealthcare.org. Early ballots can still be requested from the County Recorder (www.recorder.pima.gov/earlyreq.aspx) until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26. You can examine the ballot at your leisure in the privacy of your home. When the ballot is completed, you can put it in the white ballot affidavit envelope, which must be signed by the voter, placed in the yellow postage-paid return envelope and mailed back to the Pima County Recorder’s office.

For those who want to vote the old-fashioned way, or who want to turn in their early ballots at the polling place, Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
