Why I vote: Leeanna Murphy

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

“I vote because I can.  This is one of the few countries that allow us the privilege of having a say in our government and voting is my way of using that privilege,” said Leeanna. “What compels me is the need for good leadership. Without it, our way of life and our freedoms could be lost.”

To someone trying to decide whether to vote or not, Leeanna would say:    “This is a privilege few people have and it is the opportunity for us be heard.  Casting our vote lets the leaders know what we think and what we want for our future.”

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.
