Tomorrow morning I will head to my polling place to vote for the issues and values I care about. If you haven’t already voted early or by absentee ballot, tomorrow is your day too! To get ready, I’ve been thinking about what I need to know to ensure that my voice is heard – information about the candidates and ballot measures, as well as information about my polling place and any identification I’ll need. Have you thought about what you need to know for tomorrow?
If not, it's not too late to find out how your vote can support candidates and policies that promote women's access to the health care we need and makes sure we have safeguards in place to protect women's health. At the National Women’s Health Network, we support candidates and policies that stand for:
- Women’s preventive health services and the new health care law
- Access to a range of contraceptive options and abortion care
- Safe, effective and evidence-based prescription drugs, medical devices and medical treatments
- Independent and scientifically accurate information women use to make health decisions – from sex-ed to medical products and services to drug and device advertising
Do you have a plan for voting tomorrow? Make sure you know:
- Where your polling place is located
- What time your polling place opens and closes
- What form(s) of identification you need to have with you

Elections give us all a chance to speak up about what’s important to us – make sure to think about how you can promote the health of the women you care about in this election season.
