It's Election Day - Vote for our kids.
If you haven't voted yet, there's still time to head to your polling place today. Rock the Vote has a state-by-state resource guide if you need to find your polling place or verify your registration status. Most states require you to be pre-registered to vote but in some states, you can still register in person today.
Political pundits have predicted very low turnout today, as voters are dissatisfied with both political parties. However, the 114th Congress is likely to tackle some important issues that could have a big impact on children with cancer and childhood cancer survivors, so we hope you'll make your voice heard through your ballot. When the new Congress starts in January, they'll be faced with a host of budget challenges, from this fiscal year's appropriations to a looming debt ceiling deadline. The Affordable Care Act is likely to be either legislatively threatened or strengthened, depending on which party takes control.
Do you know where your representative stands on childhood cancer issues? We hope you'll go vote today, and then join us in 2015 as we take steps to advance policies that will enable our kids to live longer, healthier lives.
