Don’t forget to vote today!
If you, like me, happen to be coming off of some hectic months and are just now figuring out both where you need to go to vote AND how you’ll be voting, I highly recommend referencing Planned Parenthood’s voting guide, which is very well designed and, probably more importantly, attempting to help guide us all into making up for hundreds of years of government-sanctioned, institutional misogyny.
It’s especially handy on things like Proposition 46 in California, which is described as follows on the ballot:
“Should California require random drug testing of doctors, require doctors to check a statewide database before prescribing certain drugs, and raise the cap on noneconomic damages in medical negligence lawsuits?”
To which Planned Parenthood responds:
“Because Prop 46 would reduce access to reproductive health care, Planned Parenthood urges a NO vote. The proposition will negatively impact access to OB/GYNs, who may have to reduce services because of increased insurance costs, particularly impacting rural and low-income Californians.”
Nice tidbit of information there.
So don’t get discouraged fellow last-minnute political-crammers, just get help. We can do this.
Also, don’t vote for this guy.
