Your Vote Matters

October 7, 2020

Dear Penn Medicine Colleagues,


Every election is an opportunity to make your voice heard and support your community. This election is no different, and our faculty, staff, students, and the patients we care for will bring important ideas and perspectives to elections at all levels this year.


Your voice matters. You have the power to advocate for the issues you care about. You can have a direct impact today by registering to vote or requesting your mail-in ballot.


Choose whatever voting method is best for you, but please, make sure your vote is counted.


Watch this video to be inspired by members of the Penn Medicine community sharing the reasons why they vote. Next, take action to champion Penn Medicine Votes!



Watch the Penn Medicine Votes video to learn more about the movement
 and see why your colleagues vote.




Thanks to the Penn Medicine Votes* campaign this year, over 3,500 patients and employees have registered to vote and/or requested mail-in ballots.

  Voter registration deadlines are fast approaching – take note and act now to ensure your voice is heard.

  PENNSYLVANIA residents must register to vote online, by mail, or in-person by October 19.
