With Election Day less than a week away, the American Motorcyclist Association is urging everyone to “Vote Like A Motorcyclist” this year.
“Elections are the voting public’s opportunity to select their leaders — leaders who will make laws that may expand or limit the riding community’s freedoms for years to come,” said Wayne Allard, AMA vice president of government relations. “It is critical for motorcyclists to identify motorcycle-friendly candidates, assist their run for office, and vote for them on Nov. 4.”
The American Motorcyclist Association is a nonpartisan organization and does not endorse political candidates. However, the AMA encourages everyone to vote and urges riders to cast their ballots based on candidates’ positions on motorcycling-related issues, as well as other issues of importance to them.
The AMA Vote Like A Motorcyclist campaign offers useful tools for all voters at www.americanmotorcyclist.com/Rights/GetInvolved/ElectMotorcycleFriendlyCandidates.aspx.
Not yet registered to vote? Check if your state is still accepting voter registration forms and register here www.canivote.org.
If you have any questions about getting involved, please contact the AMA’s grassroots team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AMA members can access the AMA 2014 Voter Guide, which offers a voting scorecard for candidates and rates their responses to the AMA candidate questionnaire. The guide can be found here www.americanmotorcyclist.com/Membership/Members_Only/VoterGuide.aspx.
