Voting is one of the most powerful tools we have to influence public policies that impact children and families and address health inequities in our communities. Election Day is 39 days away. Make sure you are registered to vote, and encourage eligible patients, families and colleagues to do the same.
Here are just a few ways to do that:
- Print out this “prescription“(English and Spa
nish versions) to share with families in your practice, encouraging them to register to vote and complete the census, which will end on Sept. 30.
- Encourage eligible patients and their families to register to vote or request to vote by mail using tools available here, including a digital badge backer and phone background, from the nonpartisan voter registration effort VotER.
- Post messages on social media using #VoteKids about why you plan to vote like children’s futures depend on it. Here you can find sample social media messages and graphics, including a new social media cover photo!
