Texas--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear Texas HSLDA Members and Friends,

Election time is fast approaching. This November 4, many state and
federal officials are up for re-election.

The election outcome will determine what freedoms you will keep and
what freedoms you will lose.

Exercising your right to vote is crucial. The voter guide below will
help you make informed decisions as you cast your vote.

Remember, statistics show that only 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 it only takes about 13% of adults to elect any given
candidate. Your vote counts!

ACTION:

To download the Free Market Foundation's nonpartisan 2008 General
Election Voters' Guide, visit http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5668 .

If you have not yet used a voter's guidebook, 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.

Free Market Foundation's 2008 General Election Voters' Guide is
nonpartisan and legal for distribution at your church, civic club,
etc. To reserve your copy of the Voters' Guide for the 2008 General
Election or request a bulk shipment for your church, please call
972-423-8889 or go to http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5669 .

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

A couple of things to keep in mind:

> For the Frequently Asked Questions on the Free Market Foundation's
Voter's Guide, visit http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5670 .

> 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. To request an absentee
ballot, contact your local election authority by visiting
http://www.hslda.org/elink.asp?id=5671 .

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

Sincerely,

Chris Klicka
HSLDA Senior Counsel

-> Who are the nation's best lobbyists?

We don't know that this has ever been determined; but we do know
that HSLDA's National Center for Home Education is the only
national organization lobbying on behalf of homeschoolers on
Capitol Hill.
