The November election is only weeks away and all indications are that many races will be close—possibly decided by a small number of votes. Will you help us rally values voters to the polls on Nov. 6?
Recent election history demonstrates that some contests are won or lost by only a handful of votes.
|•||President George W. Bush won the presidency in 2000 by a 527-vote margin in Florida—out of nearly 6 million votes cast in the Sunshine state|
|•||Incumbent U.S. Senator Norm Coleman of Minnesota lost his Senate seat to Al Franken by 312 votes in 2008|
|•||South Dakota U.S. Senator Tim Johnson won re-election in 2002 by only 524 votes|
|•||In 2004, Democrat Christine Gregoire defeated Republican Dino Rossi for Washington’s gubernatorial race by 133 votes|
Your vote counts and can make a difference in the outcome of an election. But it can only be counted if you—and others—vote.
Deciding who will lead our national, state and local governments is a privilege entrusted to us as Americans. Yet, the privilege to elect our leaders requires participation and the time to participate is near.
More than 30 states permit early voting so voting is already underway in some parts of the nation. In addition, a handful of states allow voter registration up until Election Day so if you are not registered, you may still be able to vote in the upcoming election.
This election, we have the opportunity to protect innocent life, the definition of marriage as one man and one woman, and the right to religious freedom. But only if we’re able to reach and motivate our fellow pro-family Americans to cast their ballots this election. Will you help us make a difference this election?
Thank you in advance for voting to support pro-family candidates, for your prayers for our nation and for your generous support as we elect men and women who will make life-impacting decisions for all of us.
For faith and family,
Senior Vice President, Government & Public Policy
