Will You Be That One Vote?

Friday, June 4, 2004


Not In Town On Election Day?
Want To Vote Early?
NRA Can Help!

History is replete with examples where a single vote, or a small percentage of votes, spelled the difference between victory and defeat in an election or on piece of legislation. Consider the following:
*In 1778, ONE VOTE gave America the English language instead of German;
*In 1845, ONE VOTE brought Texas into the Union;
*In 1878, ONE VOTE gave Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency of the United States;
*In 1941, ONE VOTE saved Selective Service just weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked;
*In 1994, a race for the U.S. House was originally decided by FOUR VOTES;
*In 1998, a U.S. Senate race was decided by 400 VOTES out of 400,000 cast;
*In 2002, an anti-gun candidate in a state primary race in Arizona won by FIVE VOTES;
*In February 2004, Wisconsin Governor Doyle`s (D) veto of Right-to-Carry was sustained by only ONE VOTE; And of course...
*In the 2000 presidential election, 537 VOTES in Florida ensured the election of George W. Bush over Al Gore!

These examples clearly prove that every vote matters. And once again, as this year`s elections are expected to be extremely close, it is critical that every NRA member and pro-Second Amendment supporter exercises his right to vote in order to protect our Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

Even if you can`t vote in person on November 2, your voice can still be heard!

Most states allow voters to cast their ballot early (either in-person or by mail). And every state allows absentee voting if you plan to be away on Election Day--November 2. To make sure the vote of every Second Amendment supporter is counted this year, NRA is providing a free service that will make voting easier in the 2004 general election. Working with HelpingAmericansVote.Org™, a non-partisan service, we are providing you with information about early voting and absentee voting options that will make your participation easier.

In addition to the information you will need to vote early or via absentee ballot, you can also use this service to register to vote, or to update your voter registration to reflect a recent change in residence. To access this site, go to http://NRA.HelpingAmericansVote.org and select your state.

Please forward this link to your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners, and encourage them to take advantage of this service to ensure that the voices of America`s 65 million gun owners are heard loudly and clearly in this year`s critically-important elections!

With so many examples of elections and issues being decided by ONE VOTE, we can`t take even a single pro-gun vote for granted this year. Please visit http://NRA.HelpingAmericansVote.org and make sure your vote is cast to support your gun rights.
