The 2016 election is critical for dentistry, as you will be electing the federal and state senators and representatives who will decide key issues for dentistry, including insurance reform, Medicaid and access-to-dental care issues in Colorado. That’s why the CDA created a 2016 election guide that looks at how proposed amendments and ballot issues could affect you.
The 2016 ballot asks for your input on the election of both federal and local officials, as well as several possible changes to the state constitution and statutes (laws). A number of initiatives on this year’s ballot could have major effects for healthcare providers and practices.
Ballots will be mailed to all Colorado voters starting Oct. 17, and the deadline for submitting your 2016 ballot will be here before you know it – on Tuesday, Nov. 8. Please take time to educate yourself on ballot issues and vote!
