2016 Elections

electionWe are now almost just days away from the 2016 election. This has been one of the most talked about election years in modern history so we’ll spare you all the details because most of you have your opinions clearly set. We also will never tell anyone how they should vote as we believe this is in poor taste and is an individual decision each of you must make. Each of you should vote your conscious for the individuals you feel BEST represent your beliefs and views. The only thing we do strongly suggest is to avoid voting straight party as in our opinion, this is lazy and keeps the same people in power that have placed our state or country in the position it is today.

 

Registering to vote:

In Utah, the deadline to register has already passed so your only option is online. You must submit the online form no later than November 1st to be eligible to vote in the election. https://secure.utah.gov/voterreg/index.html

 

Contacting the candidates:
We encourage everyone to get out and contact everyone running for public office in your district or state. Most should have Facebook accounts that they or their staff monitor daily and is an easy way to get a message to them. You should also look for their campaign pages online and contact them via email that way so there is a good paper trail. We have already received responses to most messages sent and at least one has generated a face-to-face meeting. Some suggestions on things to discuss (industry related of course):
  • What are their views about the vapor industry
  • Tell your personal quit story but keep it short (2-3 sentences max)
  • Have access to the latest science that you can quote and provide
  • Any other topic that is important to YOU…remember, YOU are the one voting and they will be working to represent your views.

Regardless of how you feel about the presidential race, it is CRITICAL everyone gets out and votes this election. Almost all positions state-wide are up for reelection so this is the best time to let your voice be heard and unlike the presidential race, your vote matters more now than ever.
