SEMA eNews Vol. 11, No. 39, September 25, 2008

HISTORIC ELECTION WEEKS AWAY—VOTE EARLY BEFORE GOING TO THE SEMA SHOW

Our industry has much at stake in this election. On November 4, 2008, voters will elect thousands of state and local leaders, 11 governors, 435 members of Congress, 35 senators and a new president. Each and every one of these elected officials has the ability to positively or negatively shape legislation affecting each of us, our company and our communities.

Given that most of the industry will be in Las Vegas attending the SEMA Show, individuals are urged to vote prior to leaving. The links below will provide information on voter registration, obtaining absentee ballots or where available, voting early in person.

This information is designed to encourage employees of SEMA-member companies, regardless of political affiliations, to exercise their civic duty and vote. This message is brought to you by SEMA PAC. For more information, contact PAC Administrator Jason Tolleson at jasont@sema.org or by phone at 909/396-0289, ext. 168.
