Cancer Votes MaterialsCancer Votes is the nation’s leading election program educating the public and candidates about the actions lawmakers should take to make fighting cancer a national priority.

The purpose of Cancer Votes is to raise the public profile of cancer issues by educating the public about candidates’ positions on important policy issues that are part of ACS CAN’s fight against cancer. ACS CAN does not advocate for or against the election of particular candidates or otherwise attempt to influence the outcome of any elections.

More than half a million people in the United States will die from cancer this year alone. That’s why lawmakers at every level of government need to understand that they play an enormous role in winning the fight against cancer.

From now through Election Day, volunteers like you in nearly every congressional district will be talking to candidates about cancer issues and informing the public about candidates’ stances on making cancer a national priority.

It’s easy to get involved. From this web site, you can take action online, print materials you can use in your community, and learn more about the candidates and cancer issues.
