We ❤ Midwives
And We Vote!
November 4, 2014
We worked long and hard on the Voter's Guide, and we made one last effort to reach candidates who had not responded to earlier contacts. The guide has been updated to show candidates whose races have already been decided, which candidates are still in the race, and exactly what, if anything, they had to say in response to the question, "Would you support a bill that would legalize nationally trained and certified midwives to attend out-of-hospital births in Alabama?" Please check the Voter's Guide to see who is on the ballot in your area.
We made this guide for you, our supporters. This makes it easy for you to see where your current representatives and senators, as well as other candidates, stand on support for midwives. If they are supportive be sure to contact them now, thank them and ask if they have any questions. If they did not respond, please speak with them before Election Day and let them know this issue is important to you and you hope to have their support in the next legislative session.
And don't forget to go vote on Election Day! Check here to see if you're registered to vote, download a voter registration form here if you're not yet registered (last day to register is October 20, 2014), and look here to find out where your polling place is located.
