HSLDA--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Nebraska HSLDA members and friends,

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

Who is elected will determine what freedoms you will keep and what
freedoms you will lose.

Exercising your right to vote is crucial. The Voter Guide described
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 13% of adults elect any given candidate. Your vote
counts!

ACTION:

To download the Nebraska Family First's 2006 General Election 2006
Voter Guide, click: http://familyfirst.org/images/VoterGuide06_new.pdf


If you have not yet used one, 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 theirs.

Family First's 2006 Voter Guide is nonpartisan and legal for
distribution at your church, civic club, etc. You may print, copy,
and distribute as many as you wish.

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

A couple of things to keep in mind:

> For more information on Family First's Voter Guide 2006, see
http://www.familyfirst.org/support/nevoter.html

> 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: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3379 and Guidelines for
Political Activities by Churches and Pastors:

> For information on voting in Nebraska, see the Nebraska Election
Administration website: http://www.sos.state.ne.us/elec/

> You may request an Early Voting (Absentee) Ballot up until 4 p.m. on
Wednesday, November 1. Monday, November 6 is the last day to cast an
early voting ballot at the County Election Office. All Early Voting
Ballots must be returned to the Election Office by the closing of
polls on Election Day. For information on obtaining an Early Voting
(Absentee) Ballot, see http://www.sos.state.ne.us/elec/early_vote.html


Thanks for caring!

Sincerely,

-> "I saved my entire membership fee with one discount"

"When I called Liberty to find out what kind of discount we could
get, they told us we would 10% off our car insurance and 5% off
our homeowner's insurance. What we will save is more than double
what it costs to join HSLDA. With one child getting his driver's
license this year, the savings will be a real blessing!"
