Why I Vote: Kathleen Tanner

Kathleen Tanner, Lean Practitioner

“I vote because by doing so I am taking responsibility for understanding the critical issues confronting our country, state and city,” said Kathleen. “And then with that understanding, I vote for what I believe are the best solutions for all the people in the US.”

The two issues that Kathleen feels are most critical currently are access to a quality education for all children and young people, and adequate healthcare for all.”

Why vote? “I would tell anyone wondering if they should vote that we are fortunate to live in a country where the citizens can influence government and we should never take that for granted.”

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.
