Health Care is Driving Voters to the Polls

Author Juanita Tolliver explains why health care is the top issue driving voters to the polls this November.

Repeat after me: Health care is the top issue that will drive voter turnout in November.

Health care is the be-all, end-all issue of this midterm election cycle because it unifies voters across backgrounds, political ideologies and demographics.

Whether it is hikes in health care premiums or unexpected medical bills, the threats to the Affordable Care Act’s protections for more than 130 million Americans living with pre-existing conditions, or the astronomical costs of medical prescriptions, voters will mobilize next month because their lives are at stake.
