We don’t stop caring about our patients or healthcare at the end of our shift. Voting is an important way for us to speak out for our values, and one of the most powerful ways we can stand up for our patients and make needed changes in our healthcare system.

Many voters already received their voters’ pamphlet full of information on state ballot measures and judicial races. Be on the lookout for the local voters’ pamphlet with candidate statements to arrive along with your ballot around October 18, 2019.

SEIU 1199NW nurses and healthcare workers from across the state meet and interview the candidates to ask them the right questions: how will they work with us to improve care? Will they stand with us to improve staffing for us and our patients? Will they speak out for our rights on the job?

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

Our vote matters—we have the chance to make a difference for our patients and our community!
