New York--Your Vote Crucial in Preserving Homeschool Freedom

Dear New York HSLDA Members and Friends,

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

The winners of this coming election will play a big part in
determining what freedoms you will keep and what freedoms you will

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!

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
