The message will be delivered today to over 17,000 voters in Washington state who have yet to cast their ballots as part of Washington CAN Education and Research Fund's Get Out The Vote Campaign.

In the phone message, Washington CAN! member, Trish Divine Wilder, from Walla Walla, shares the emotional story of losing her nephew because he was uninsured. Tearing up during the call, she urges Washingtonians to vote on Tuesday to elect leaders who will work to guarantee quality, affordable health care for everyone.

Trish first shared her story publicly on December 1st, 2007 at the Heartland Presidential Forum in Iowa when she asked then presidential candidate Hillary Clinton about her health care plan.

Bill and I are so happy to be working with the most effective progressive organization in Washington State to get these calls made. We are WaCAN alumni and so pleased and proud to see this great organization keep pushing and learning and creating change. Great work and I'll see everyone on election night at the Broadway Grill.
