Register by Monday to vote in the primary election

Vote Rachel TineoEven though the presidential race is front and center right now, many important races closer to home will be settled in the Aug. 30 primary.

Monday is the last day to register to vote in the primary election – and it’s important because many races are effectively over after the primary, in large part because of voter registration advantages of one party or the other in many districts.

There are 14 open seats in the state House of Representatives this year, and candidates often have widely differing positions on important issues from education to health care to economic development.

As a nonprofit community hospital, Tucson Medical Center does not endorse specific candidates, but does encourage its employees to make their voices heard at the ballot box.

And don’t forget that Arizona’s primary election laws allow independents to pick a party ballot and vote in those races.
