The controversial presidential election has garnered lots of attention and Google searches, revealing an engaged electorate that is still actively seeking information leading up to Election Day on November 8. During the presidential debate on Monday alone, Google reported that there was a surge of 100,000 searches for the phrase “register to vote” in Spanish.
NACDS is urging the pharmacy community to get involved by learning more about the candidates at all levels of government, browse races and find out how to register to vote and volunteer for the candidates of their choice.
