Two Great Voting Tools

     Dear Friends,
     One question I am often asked is "who are the pro-gun candidates.  I cranked out a couple of voters guides, but there is another way to find out.
     In the NC 2nd Congressional District, Richard Burr is the NRA endorsed candidate for US Senate.  For the US House, NRA has not made an endorsement, however Renee Ellmers has a grade of AQ while Bob Etheridge has a D.
     In the NC State Senate and House races, things get a bit stickier because of all the districts for those races which are contained in the 2nd Congressional District.  Without knowing where you happen to live, I can't really say "Candidate "X" or Candidate "Y."  Any easy way to figure it out is to go to the NRA Political Victory Fund website, then enter your nine digit zip code and click ENTER. That will tell you which candidates are running for each office, whether they are endorsed or not, and their NRA grade.  You can also use this link for the NC Board of Elections to find specific information for you.  It will show voting locations for early voting, your regular polling place and other personalized information.  To use this, just select "SHOW ME MY VOTING INFORMATION, enter the requested information and then click SELECT.  Most importantly, it tells you whether or not you are registered.  If you are not, you can go to an early voting polling location and register then vote all in one fell swoop.

I hope this is helpful to you.

Sincerely yours,
-Tom Goffe
