Your Vote Makes a Difference in
2020 — and Beyond
BY BRANDON GRAHAM
Senior Manager of Advocate Engagement at NAMI
By the end of Election Day 2020 on November 3, over 100 million people across the country are expected to have cast their ballots in federal, state and local elections. Every election is different for its own local reasons, but together, they have something in common: their impact on mental health.
Voting is a deeply personal decision.
NAMI is nonpartisan and doesn’t take positions on candidates or political parties — and we won’t ever tell you how to vote.
But to make a fair and equitable mental health system a reality, it all starts with casting a ballot and keeping mental health in mind when you vote for any candidate.
