Hawaii--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Hawaii 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 takes about 13% of adults to elect any given
candidate. Your vote does count!


To download Hawaii Family Forum's nonpartisan 2006 General Election
Voter's Guides click: .

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.

HFF's 2006 General Election Voter's Guide is nonpartisan and legal for
distribution at your church, civic club, etc. For an online voter
education package for churches or other groups go to: .

All of the forms at the above link may be photocopied and distributed
freely. For a hard copy of all of these materials please HFF at (808)

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

A couple of things to keep in mind:

> 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 at and Guidelines for
