Preparing Today for Success on Election Day

Friday, August 31, 2012

The engine that drives the NRA machine is you…and your tens of millions of fellow Second Amendment supporters.  What should you be doing TODAY to ensure success on November 6? Here are some suggestions:

Register to Vote. Nothing is more important than ensuring our supporters are registered to vote. If voters who support the Second Amendment don't register to vote prior to the deadline, they won't have a voice on Election Day. If you are not currently registered to vote, REGISTER TODAY!

Recruit More Volunteers. The more volunteers you recruit early and keep in contact with, the more boots on the ground you will have for precinct walks, phone banks, and other activities. You can never have too many volunteers!

Hunt Where The Ducks Are. Whether registering pro-gun voters or recruiting pro-Second Amendment volunteers, focus your efforts on places where "our people" can be found. Our goal is to engage our supporters. Gun shows, gun shops, gun & hunting clubs, shooting ranges—what we call gun owners' "natural resources"—are the places in which you should concentrate your primary efforts.

Raise Awareness. Letters to the editors of local papers on issues of concern to the gun-owning community are a great way to inform and educate your fellow Second Amendment sympathizers on issues of mutual concern. Write a letter to the editor in support of an NRA issue. Encourage others to do so. And, keep an eye out for pro-gun letters that are published and work to contact the authors to commend them and recruit them into your network! For assistance in writing letters to the editor, utilize our "Guidelines For Communicating With The Media" feature.

The one factor in any campaign that is critical is TIME. Every day we are not working to increase our volunteer ranks is a day lost that we will never get back. As the calendar turns and we get closer to Election Day, things only get more hectic. That is why RIGHT NOW is a great time to ensure you maximize your effectiveness in those crazy days and weeks leading up to Election Day.
