Oregon--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Oregon HSLDA Members and Friends,

Primary Election day in Oregon is scheduled for May 20. Many local
candidates are on the primary ballot to determine who will be voted on
in the General Election this November.

Who is elected can play a big part in determining what freedoms you
will keep and what freedoms you will lose.

Exercising your right to vote is crucial. The voter guides 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)! In primary elections
this number can even be smaller.

For most general elections that means it only takes about 13% of
adults to elect any given candidate. Your vote does count!


ACTION:

To find the 2008 Voters Guide for the Primary Elections from the
Oregon Secretary of State for the candidates running for office in
your legislative district, please go to:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5110 .

This Voters Guide, among other things, seeks to educate voters as to
where candidates for public office stand on various issues.

To find additional information about local candidates in Oregon, go to
Project Vote Smart at: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5111 .

For more information on the primary election scheduled for May 20 go
to: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5112 or visit

place.


Sincerely,

Thomas J. Schmidt
HSLDA Staff Attorney

-> Extreme makeovers are for extreme circumstances...

Most homeschools don't need an extreme makeover, but there is
something to be said for attention to detail and recognition of
accomplishments. Watch the media and you'll soon see that not
everyone wants home educators and homeschooling to look good.
HSLDA works hard to shed light on the good work of home educators
so it's obvious that we don't need someone "making-over" our
homeschools. Join HSLDA and help us show the world that we're fine
as we are . . . thank you!
