Be Sure You Register To Vote!

Friday, September 24, 2004

One of the simplest, yet most important, things gun owners can do this election season is ensure they are currently registered to vote. Our vote is our voice; if we don`t use it, we will lose it! We can`t afford to let others decide for us who will represent our interests in Washington or in the state legislature. Even if you can`t vote in person on November 2, your voice can still be heard! Early voting (where one votes prior to Election Day, either in-person or by mail) is underway now, or will commence shortly, in the following states: AZ, DE, IA, MI, MS, MO, NJ, ND, SC, SD, VA, and WY. Also, every state allows absentee voting if you plan to be away on November 2. But time is running out! Remember, some states require individuals to register to vote well in advance, so if you haven`t registered, please be sure to do so right away! NRA-ILA has a section on its website that will provide you with information about early voting and absentee voting options that will make your participation easier. You can also use this site to register to vote, or to update your voter registration to reflect a recent change in residence. To access this site, please go to www.NRAILA.org, and click on the "NRA-ILA HelpingAmericansVote" icon and select your state. Or, you can go directly to the site at http://NRA.HelpingAmericansVote.org.

In addition, to help you truly learn which candidates support our Second Amendment rights, and which oppose them, visit www.NRAPVF.org, where, in the very near future, you`ll find the NRA-Political Victory Fund`s (NRA-PVF) grades for candidates seeking office, political ads, and other important election-related information you will need to make an informed decision in November. Simply put, www.NRAPVF.org is your place for one-stop-shopping for all of your election needs!

Please make sure every one of your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners is a registered voter. Forward these links to them and encourage them to take advantage of these services to ensure that the voices of America`s 65 million gun owners are heard loudly and clearly in this year`s critically-important elections! We can`t take even a single pro-gun vote for granted! Please make sure your vote is cast to support your gun rights!
