Elections are right around the corner – Use your vote to help preserve the future of purebred dogs!

Election Day 2020 is Tuesday, November 3. This year, the U.S. President, all 435 seats in the United States House of Representatives, 35 of the 100 seats in the Senate, 13 governorships, and countless other state and local elections will be contested.

To preserve the future of purebred dogs, it’s important to identify dog-friendly candidates and use your vote to elect those who will protect the rights of responsible dog owners, exhibitors and breeders. Here are four steps that every dog owner should take during the 2020 election cycle.

Make sure your voter registration is up-to-date, and consider hosting a voter registration drive among your club members or as part of a virtual or live event.

Find out where, when, and how to vote — including absentee and early voting options. Also check on current requirements for proof of identity.

Become an educated voter – identify and support those candidates who respect your rights as a responsible dog owner.

Mark your calendar for the upcoming elections, then get out and vote!
