The Midterm elections are literally a few days away and it is important for all registered voters to go to the polls on November 6th.

This election is one of the most important of our time. It will determine a lot for many citizens especially when it comes to health care and Medicaid. Currently, there are four states that have agreed to the terms of Medicaid expansion, ensuring that many of the residents of those states receive health care. Other states may not be so lucky without residents going to the polls. If you vote on November 6th 2.7 Million people will not gain Medicaid.

Are you willing to take that risk?
