Election Day Brings The Opportunity To Vote Like A Motorcyclist
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.
