Video Voter Guide, Right Here! Plus, TFF Action's New YouTube Channel!

TFF Action, our sister organization, has published its 2009 Voter Guides, which list the positions of the candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general on crucial issues facing all Virginians, as well as those running for certain seats in the House of Delegates. You can read them online here, as well as print and distribute or forward them electronically. You can also get hard copies by calling John Smith at 804-343-0010 or by e-mailing him at john@familyfoundation.org. While it compiled the Voter Guides, TFF Action also launched our latest Internet site — its own YouTube channel — and its first hit is this video voter guide:

The candidates and the issues: Who supports and opposes what?

The issues facing Virginia this year are monumental. The election may be a turning point not only for Virginia, but the nation. The eyes of the country are on us — and the message Virginia sends in two weeks will either validate the efforts of those in power in Washington, D.C., or send them a message and prepare the way for a reversal of trends in 2010. Inform yourself. Inform others. Share this information and this link with those on your e-mail lists, post it on social networking sites, and consider ordering the Voter Guides for distribution to your church.

It Must Be Postmarked By October 5, Or You Will Miss The Biggest Opportunity Of 2009!

Now we’re not talking about any prize winning sweepstakes — it’s much more important than that. We’re talking about the opportunity to make your voice heard for traditional values in the most important election in the nation this year and the most important Virginia election in modern history.

By making sure you, your friends, family and fellow church members are registered to vote and go to the polls on Election Day, you will help send a strong message that secular progressivism has no place in a nation founded on Judeo-Christian values.

You can also do a lot to help make sure others are registered. If you are a pastor, please hold a voter registration drive in your church and encourage your congregation to get registered. If you are not a pastor, please ask your pastor to allow you to run a voter registration drive in your church. We have kits available with everything you need to run such a drive, and can get those to you ASAP.

Also, churches can urge people to register and to vote by including an announcement in the church bulletin. Sample language for your bulletin can be found, here, on the TFF Action Website.

There are only three Sunday’s left before the voter registration deadline, so don’t let time run out!

In order to be eligible to vote in the November 3 election, all voter registration applications must be postmarked by no later than October 5.

So, make sure you are registered! Should you have any question as to whether or not you are, please go ahead and complete the application, closely following the instructions provided, and send it to your local registrar’s office. If you already are registered, your application will simply be discarded. However, please make no assumptions. Your voice is too important during this crucial time.

Should you need a voter registration application, or know people who do, please visit tffaction.org or familyfoundation.org, and there you will find a link to the State Board of Elections where an application can be downloaded, printed, completed, signed and mailed according to the instructions on the application.

If you have further questions about voter registration, please feel free to contact John Smith at john@familyfoundation.org or call him at 804-343-0010. We are glad to assist you.

Thousands have registered to have their voices heard this election year; make sure yours is one that will ring loud and clear for traditional values!
