REGISTERING TO VOTE!

One in every 40 voters in the state of Pennsylvania is a registered nurse. It is more important than ever to vote as our country faces times of adversity and hardship. If you will be out of your home state or county it is critical you apply for a mail-in ballot or absentee ballot by the deadlines for your legislative district. Rules and regulations do change from state to state therefore make sure to pay close attention to information regarding your state.
