Did You Know...
The candidates we elect this November will make decisions that will be with us for many years to come. This is especially true for the decisions regarding the funding levels for services and supports in the state budget to keep people independent and in the community.

We do not endorse candidates or political parties and will never tell you who you should vote for. Instead we say, "Get informed and vote your values!" We must elect candidates who understand critical issues facing people with brain injury and other disabilities to ensure their needs are met.

The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance has a website for conducting candidate research, the Advocacy Action Center Election Page that can help you contact your local candidates directly so you can ask them about issues important to you.

Not sure what to ask them? Go to our Advocacy Action Center Action Alert for questions to ask about some of our priority issues.

The Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance encourages you to Get Ready to Vote in 2014 by getting informed! If you have any questions, call Erica at 612-378-2742 or 800-669-6442, or contact Erica by email at ericas@braininjurymn.org.
