HSLDA--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Utah 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 Legislative Action
Center 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 view the Family Research Council's Utah Legislative Action Center,
go to http://capwiz.com/frc/state/main/?state=UT

From this site, you can easily access information about races,
candidates, and voting in Utah. Contact information is available so
that you can personally ask candidates where they stand on specific
issues.

Please help spread the word about this resource for responsible
citizenship! Forward this message to your family and friends in Utah
so they can also access 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: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3379 and Guidelines for
Political Activities by Churches and Pastors:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3380.

> For more Utah voter information, see the Utah State Voter
information website: http://elections.utah.gov/voterinformation.html


> Information on absentee ballots is available here:
http://elections.utah.gov/absenteewhat.htm
Remember that absentee ballots must be postmarked before and received
by the county clerk's office by noon on Election Day.

Thanks for caring!

Sincerely,


Michael P. Donnelly
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Is customer service an art or a science?

For us, good customer service is both an art and a science
-it should appeal to our members and be effective. Consider what
our members say about us:

The freedom HSLDA allows me to have as I homeschool is wonderful!
They handle the law and I get to dedicate the time to my daughter.

HSLDA members since 1993, our membership is just as important to
us as our children's curriculum. Thank you HSLDA for all you do on
our behalf! - West Valley, NY
