Are you registered to vote? Are you sure? Election Day is November 8, but we encourage all Flight Attendants to vote early or absentee. Don’t let your schedule prohibit you from making sure your voice is heard. In addition, National Voter Registration Day is Tuesday, Sept. 27, and it’s a great time to make sure you, your family and friends, all set to go to the polls. Your Government Affairs Committee is working to ensure you have all the information necessary to cast your vote in the 2016 General Election.
We know that many of you will be working away from home and your polling location on Election Day. To ensure your voice is heard, please plan to vote early or by absentee ballot. For more information on Flight Attendant friendly voting options visit afacwa.org/vote.
If you are not registered to vote you don’t have to wait until Tuesday, register now! Let’s make sure our voices are heard at the polls and we elect those who will promote aviation safety and our careers as safety professionals and aviation’s first responders.
