We don’t stop caring about our patients or healthcare at the end of our shift. Voting is our civic duty, but it’s also one of the most powerful ways we can stand up for our patients and make needed changes in our healthcare system.

Watch your mailbox, ballots are arriving!

SEIU nurses and healthcare workers from across the state meet and interview the candidates to ask them the questions that matter to us: will they work with us to improve care and staffing? Will they speak out for our rights on the job? How will they fund healthcare programs for our state’s most vulnerable residents?

Here is the full list of candidates who share our values and have earned the support of nurses and healthcare workers.

Be sure to return your ballot by Tuesday, August 1.
