Important reminder: Register to vote for November 7 elections!

BLET members are encouraged to register to vote now in order to vote in the ultra-important November 7 elections.

The mid-term elections being decided on November 7 will decide the make up of the U.S. House and Senate. Additionally, many important state and local elections are being contested this year.

"Most BLET members and their families realize the significance of this year's election campaigns," BLET Vice President and National Legislative Representative John Tolman said. "Many issues that will affect the future of working men and women will be decided by the outcome of this election. As we have seen in the past several years, the needs of working Americans are not being addressed by the current office holders in Washington, our State Houses and Legislatures. Your vote on November 7 can hopefully turn the tides back towards working people and away from the corporate titans who value profits over people."

Registering to vote has been made simple by the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

The deadline for voter registration is coming up soon in many states. To register to vote, go to: and click on Register to Vote on the left hand side.
