Vote for Mental Health Care

This is an Election Day reminder to please vote in support of mental health care. As part of NAMI’s “Mental Health Care Gets My Vote” initiative, NAMI chapters around the US have been particularly active in this election cycle to mobilize and empower individuals and families affected by mental illness to register and vote in 2012. Although we are waiting to hear back about an official count of how many voters NAMI Texas affiliates registered to vote, it’s safe to say that NAMI members around the state of Texas registered over one hundred voters in 2012. NAMI Texas thanks you sincerely for anything you did to contribute to this important effort.

-You can find your polling place by visiting the Texas Secretary of State’s website:      

-All polling places in Texas are open until 7 pm CST.
-There are a number of critical elections on the ballot in Texas, including: US President, US Senator, US House of Representatives, State Supreme Court, Court of Criminal Appeals, and Railroad Commissioner. It is also likely that there are local/county ballot initiatives in your area that directly impact mental health care.

 If you haven’t already, please vote today and make mental health care a primary consideration in your voting decision. Thank you very much for your time.
