Why I Vote: Michael Duran

Michael Duran/Vice President & Chief Development Officer

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

“I vote because I want to have a voice in who is elected to office,” said Michael Duran. “And I vote because I care about the future of our city and our country.”

To someone trying to decide whether to vote or not, Michael would say: “Your vote matters…exercise your voice!”

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.
