HC3 Members and Partners:
Voting is one of the most important responsibilities we have as U.S. citizens and as Illinoisans.
The 2020 election is quickly approaching on Tuesday, November 3, and it is more important than ever to go to the polls and vote. We need leaders who not only understand the needs of the health care industry but who will also embrace our concerns when it comes time to vote on legislation that promotes healthier communities. The people we elect will make decisions affecting our businesses, our economy, and our future.
