Motorcycle and ATV Enthusiasts Urged to Vote Nov. 5

PICKERINGTON, Ohio -- The American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) and the All-Terrain Vehicle Association (ATVA) ask all motorcycle and ATV riders to vote in the Nov. 5 general election to protect their right to ride.

Voters nationwide will be electing candidates to offices ranging from every seat in the U.S. House and one-third of the Senate to state legislatures and township councils. Motorcycle- and ATV-friendly officials in those offices can have an enormous impact on issues such as rider education, off-highway vehicle recreation areas, or even whether motorcycle or ATV enthusiasts can ride on their own private land.

"It's important that motorcyclists and ATV riders get to know the candidates before stepping into the voting booth on Nov. 5," said Terry Lee Cook, AMA state programs manager. "We don't expect people to vote on a candidate based on a single issue, but we want voters to consider a variety of issues important to them before casting a vote.

"You won't find motorcycling and ATV issues spelled out in candidates' campaign literature," Cook added. "So voters have to ask candidates questions, either at town hall meetings or even by calling a candidate's campaign headquarters, to get answers."

Voters can find out whether they are registered to vote and who the candidates are by contacting the local county Board of Elections.
