13 Action News talks to SEIU Executive Director Grace Vergara-Mactal and Union President Kevin Carey.

We asked the SEIU, whose members include healthcare workers and public service employees, several questions.

The first question was about what they have done to motivate their members to vote in the general election.

They told us that 80% of their membership, which includes 19,000 in Nevada, have already voted. So, we asked them why their members are so motivated.

Next, we talked a little bit more about the issues that are motivating their members to make their voices heard.

Finally, we asked how the winners of the election, whomever they might be, can help the members of SEIU and the community/economy.
