It’s not too late to vote early

Get informed and get involved!

Surveys show that as many as nine out of 10 Americans cannot name the person who represents their local district in the U.S. House of Representatives.  Most tallies show the United States ranking last for voter turnout among industrialized nations.  You can help overcome the information and involvement gap.  Learn about the issues, and vote.

For those of us focused on health care issues, AZ Vote for Healthcare is a broad coalition that represents health care providers, health care facilities and patient groups to guide informed decisions.  Visit the non-partisan info source at www.azvoteforhealthcare.org.

Time is almost up, but early ballots can still be requested from the Pima County Recorder (www.recorder.pima.gov/earlyreq.aspx) until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26. When you receive the ballot, it’s easy to complete the voting process.  Put the ballot in the white affidavit envelope, which must be signed by the voter, and place the white envelope in the yellow postage-paid return envelope to mail back to the Pima County Recorder’s office.

Also, voters can visit a number of polling places to vote early, in person, through Saturday, Nov. 3. Click through at www.recorder.pima.gov/ev_sites.aspx to get the list of Early Voting Sites.

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