Let Your Voice Be Heard: Vote!
The November national elections are rapidly approaching and could yield significant changes to the balance of power in the U.S. Congress. We know it will be Secretary Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump vying for the presidency. But, there is not only a Presidential election to think of. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 34 seats in the Senate are up for grabs in a year where we have already seen historic upsets, numerous retirements, and primary elections decided by the slimmest of margins. Every ASHA member has a reason to become involved in the political process this election.
ASHA's Let Your Voice Be Heard: Vote! campaign helps you navigate the political process before, during, and after Election Day. The campaign does not advocate for certain candidates or political parties, but, instead, seeks to increase political awareness and build a community of educated and involved individuals. We hope you will find the information below helpful—regardless of your current level of involvement or political beliefs.
We are fortunate to live in a country where we have the right to vote and, by voting, have a say in how our government is run. We encourage you to take advantage of our power to create change in the way our clients are treated and how we conduct our practice. ASHA members account for more than 186,000 votes across the country—together we have a powerful message to share!
