POZ Survey Says: Special Election Edition

 The first of three presidential debates is scheduled for Wednesday, October 3, at the University of Denver. With the 2012 election only weeks away—just a reminder: it’s Tuesday, November 6—are you ready to cast your ballot for the next president of the United States? Although Obama signed the Affordable Care Act back in 2010, its implementation will greatly depend on which candidate wins this election. And regardless of whether you’re voting for Obama or Romney, a range of federal, state and local races have implications for people living with HIV. So POZ encourages everyone to get out and vote—your health depends on it.
