Dear Fellow NPs: 

Tuesday September 15 is the Delaware Primary election. Your vote may impact who shapes Delaware healthcare and NP practice for the next two years.

Primary elections with more than one candidate for roles important to healthcare laws and policy in Delaware are being held for U.S. Senator (4 candidates), two Republicans for U.S Representative with the winner to challenge the current Democratic Representative, eight contenders for Governor, and two for Insurance Commissioner
