Just a reminder that Primary runoff elections are Tuesday, August 27
You are able to vote in the runoff even if you didn’t vote in the first primary election a couple of weeks ago and even if you voted in a different party primary in previous years. However, if you voted in the primary on August 6th , you must vote in the same party’s runoff – in other words, you cannot switch parties in the runoff election during the same primary election cycle.       
There are no statewide runoffs in the Democrat party. There are two in the Republican party – Governor and Attorney General. The Friends of Mississippi Hospitals PAC has contributed to Bill Waller in the Republican primary for Governor. The Friends PAC has not made a contribution in the Attorney General race. If you’d like to know which candidates received a contribution from the Friends PAC in legislative races, contact Richard Roberson at (601) 368-3390 or rroberson@mhanet.org.   
Please go vote on Tuesday!  #operationhealthyvote
