Illinois’ March 20 Primary Election – What Doctors Need to Know!
Posted on: 2/15/2018

Here comes the 2018 election year, starting with Illinois' primary election on March 20, followed by the general election on November 6.

Why is this election year so important to physicians and their patients?

A record number of seats are open this year in the legislature so physicians have a great opportunity to help shape Illinois for the better.

But knowing which candidates to support is the key.

The Illinois State Medical Society Political Action Committee (IMPAC) helps you identify those physician-friendly candidates. Your PAC vets all candidates running for public office in Illinois and supports the campaigns of those who share the views of the medical profession, regardless of their political affiliation.

The best vehicle to drive this change is IMPAC. But to make 2018 a success, IMPAC needs your contributions to ensure the right candidates are in place to support medicine.

Why should you trust us with your contributions?

  • IMPAC's governing body is composed of Illinois physicians, which makes IMPAC uniquely qualified to understand the pain points affecting the practice of medicine.
  • 100 percent of your contributions goes toward elected officials and candidates supportive of ISMS.
  • IMPAC provides protection against our opponents who seek to undermine the medical profession.

Your generous contribution provides the best chance to guide policy that empowers physicians and sets the right course for Illinois’ future.
