Illinois--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Illinois HSLDA members and friends,

Election time is fast approaching. This November 7 many state and
federal officials are up for re-election.

The election outcome will determine what freedoms you will keep and
what freedoms you will lose.

Exercising your right to vote is crucial. The voter guide below will
help you make informed decisions as you cast your vote.

Remember statistics show approximately only 50% of eligible adults
actually register to vote. In any given election only about 50% of
registered voters vote (that is 25% of adults)!

That means only takes about 13% of adults to elect any given
candidate. Your vote counts!


To download Illinois Family Institutes's nonpartisan 2006 General
Election Voter's Guides visit .

If you have not yet used a voter's guidebook, you'll be pleased with
how easy it is to decide who to vote for by answering the same
questions submitted to the candidates and comparing your answers to

IFI's 2006 General Election Voter's Guide is nonpartisan and legal for
distribution at your church, civic club, etc. The voter's guides are
bundled in packages of 50, and orders will be shipped daily from our
office for the next couple of weeks.

To order your voter's guide, call IFI at 630-790-8370. Don't forget to
designate how many voter's guides you need for distribution at your
church (in multiples of 50).

Please help spread the word about this new resource for responsible
citizenship! Forward this message to your family and friends in
Illinois so they can also order this valuable resource.

A couple of things to keep in mind:

> To find out if your church is set to receive the guides please
contact the IFI office by email at or by phone
at 630-790-8370. To be a church captain and distribute voter's guides
in your local congregation (or neighborhood), call or email IFI today.

> For a legal perspective on what activities churches and pastors are
allowed to take part in, check out these resources prepared by
attorney James Bopp: Do's and Don'ts for Political Activities of
Pastors available at and
Guidelines for Political Activities by Churches and Pastors available
at .

> Early balloting began Monday, October 16. To request an absentee
ballot contact your local election authority by visiting . You can also call the
Illinois State Board of Elections at 217-782-4141.

Thanks for caring!
