The November national elections are rapidly approaching and could yield significant changes to the balance of power in the U.S. Congress. This year we have seen a fierce contest for the Republican nomination for President, and now we know it will be Mitt Romney versus President Barack Obama vying for the presidency in November. But there is not only a Presidential election to think of. All 435 seats in the House of Representatives and 33 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 below information 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 166,000 votes across the country—together we have a powerful message to share!

If you have any questions, please contact us at gotv@asha.org. And remember, on Tuesday, November 6, Let Your Voice Be Heard and Vote!
