USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- By now voting-eligible NRA members should have received their election ballots for the 2020 National Rifle Association Board of Directors election in your monthly magazines. NRA members must complete and return their ballots by on or before March 29th, 2020. Any votes returned after that date will not be opened or counted.
AmmoLand News has brought our readers' limited coverage of the NRA leadership and Board candidates running for 2020. Please take the time to read over the articles included at the following link, so you can cast your vote for that best woman or man to represent you on the NRA-BoD.
This year's ballot has 38 candidates, including four (4) women, and zero (0) candidates nominated by petition only. The Nomination Committee received recommendations for 65 individuals. The committee reviewed all eligible candidates – incumbents seeking reelection, and candidates who either submitted themselves for consideration or were recommended by other NRA members.
Candidates hail from twenty-two (22) states. With our fall-back-state of Texas tying Florida with each sending four (4) candidates, followed by Arizona with three (3). Notably missing are candidates from eastern states (New Jersey is as far East as candidates draw from) and the West coast, locations where membership needs the most representation in the fight for our rights.
A word about bullet voting: if you want to maximize the vote for your favorite NRA-BoD candidate, please consider limiting your check marks on your ballot to the fewest number of selections as that makes your vote much more effective than if you checked all the boxes up to your maximum vote limit of 27.

Finally, if you have not received a ballot in your February NRA magazine, that is a reliable indicator that you are not an eligible voter and need to take steps to change that by upgrading your NRA membership type so you can have a say in who leads your National Rifle Association.
