Get Involved as We Gear Up for 2014 Elections

Friday, February 14, 2014

Election Day 2014 will be here before you know it.  For us to ensure pro-Second Amendment lawmakers are elected to office, we need your help.  So, what should you be doing between now and Election Day 2014?

NRA-ILA's Grassroots Division has a multitude of programs to engage NRA members and our supporters in the political process, and we are looking for your active participation in these important programs RIGHT NOW!

Contact your NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC).  EVCs are NRA members who act as the liaison between NRA members & gun owners in their communities and pro-freedom candidates' campaigns. The main goal of an EVC is to provide these campaigns with dedicated, educated volunteers to assist with phone banks, literature drops, precinct walks, voter registration, Election Day activities, and other campaign volunteer activities.  EVCs also work to assist ILA in pursuit of its legislative objectives.   For more information on the program, click here.  If you are interested in serving in this critically important leadership capacity, call ILA Grassroots at (800) 392-VOTE (8683), and ask to speak to your state's Grassroots Coordinator.

Become a Second Amendment Activist Center.  Do you own a business?  Do you know of a local business owner who staunchly supports the Second Amendment?  If you do, this is the program for you.  These businesses will serve as distribution points for NRA-ILA election and legislative materials. Second Amendment Activist Centers will be listed at www.NRAILA.org and will be promoted via email.  To learn more about this program, click here, or call ILA Grassroots at (800) 392-VOTE (8683), and ask to speak to your state's Grassroots Coordinator.

Register To Vote.  One of the simplest, yet most important, things gun owners can do this election season is ensure they are 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 who will represent our interests in Washington or in the state legislatures.  For information on voter registration deadlines, requirements, and applications, contact NRA-ILA's Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683). You can also find most of this information, along with an on-line voter registration application, at www.NRAILA.org, under the "Register To Vote" section.  If you haven't voted in recent elections or have moved, you may need to update your voter registration.

Join NRA-ILA's Free FrontLines™ Volunteer Program & Recruit Additional FrontLines Volunteers.  Make no mistake; our strength is in our numbers.  And our FrontLines™ Volunteers represent the tip of our grassroots arrow.  NRA-ILA FrontLines™ is comprised only of the most dedicated and active volunteers who are willing to work vigorously with NRA-ILA and their EVC to defend our Second Amendment rights.   FrontLines™  is not for the faint of heart.  Only those pro-freedom activists who pledge their regular assistance when called to action will be enrolled. All FrontLines™  members receive:  up-to-the-minute legislative/election alerts and analyses; crime and safety studies and statistics; NRA-ILA's political newsletter, "Freedom's Voice"; and direct access to ILA staff and our resources via our toll free Volunteer Hotline.  To enroll in the FrontLines™ program, click here, or contact the ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683) and request a Volunteer Information Form.  If you are already enrolled in this free program, spread the word to your fellow gun owners and encourage them to join. 

Recruit Others To Receive ILA's Free E-mail Alerts.  As a reader of the Grassroots Alert, it is important that you assist us in recruiting additional recipients.  In addition to receiving the Grassroots Alert via e-mail, subscribers will also get ILA's e-mail alerts. E-mail allows you more flexibility in relaying our information to others.  Please encourage your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to sign up to receive ILA's e-mail alerts.  To sign up for FREE e-mail alerts, please click here.

Our election year success is dependent on the full engagement of our members and supporters, so we need you to participate!  While Election Day is still months away, a few moments of your time NOW, can, and will, make a difference this fall.  Help us in our grassroots efforts to deliver victory on Election Day!
