Colorado--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Colorado HSLDA Members and Friends,

Election time is fast approaching. This November 4, 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's guide described
below will help you make informed decisions as you cast your vote.

Remember, statistics show that 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 access the Rocky Mountain Family Council's (RMFC) Voters' Guide
2008, click http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5632 .

The Colorado Family Institute's Voter Guide is available at
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5633

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.

Both of the above-referenced voter guides are nonpartisan and legal
for distribution at your church, civic club, etc.

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

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=5634 and "Guidelines for
Political Activities by Churches and Pastors":
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=3380 .

> Early voting begins Monday, October 20. Colorado's Mail-In Ballot
Application is available here: http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5635

> For more information on voting in Colorado, see the Colorado
Secretary of State Elections Center website:
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5636

Don't forget to exercise your right to vote on November 4!

Sincerely,


Christopher J. Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

"We've been a Liberty Mutual customer for over 12 years. We
called and asked about our HSLDA member discount and they lowered
our premium by approx $95 per year...coincidentally the same
amount as our HSLDA annual membership fee. Thought you'd want to
know!!'"
