Why I Vote: Lorraine Glazar

Election Day is rapidly approaching (Nov. 6) and once again we have an opportunity to make our voices heard. And, as health care professionals, there are plenty of reasons to make our  voices heard. Welcome to our new series to highlight why our friends and colleagues vote.

Lorraine Glazar, Network Director, Arizona Connected Care

Lorraine votes because “I believe in participation of informed citizens in the representation and governance of my county, state and country.”

Equality and justice for all Americans are the issues that motivate her to vote and make her voice heard. 

Why vote? “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain,” says Lorraine. “Make your voice heard.”

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.
