The deadline to register to vote in California is Monday, October 22.

This is an especially important year to get your voice heard as the outcome of the election can impact the over 84,0001 individuals in California with kidney failure.

Proposition 8 is a dangerous ballot initiative in California, and if passed, can have devastating consequences for dialysis patients’ access to care. Specifically, many dialysis facilities will face potential closure leaving patients to:

  • Scramble to find new dialysis facilities for their treatment and
  • Potentially travel much farther to receive their life-saving care

Dialysis patient access to care is at stake!

Help the 84,000+ dialysis patients in California by registering to vote by October 22 and voting NO on Prop 8 on November 6.

In addition, help us spread the word about registering to vote and the dangers of this initiative by reaching out to your family and friends that live in California.

Register to Vote in California.
