California Congressman Duncan Hunter speaks with Cynthia Cabrera of SFATA on his switch to Vaping, Vaping in the Military, HR 2058, Nancy Pelosi, and the political landscape, among other topics.
Today, California Congressman Duncan Hunter not only outed himself as a vaper, but issued a powerful statement to FDA and his fellow members of Congress supporting a change in the grandfather date.
Liz Thomson lost her re-election bid to Conrad James by just a few hundred votes on Tuesday in a district where her party has a voter registration advantage. She was campaigning and trying to back-peddle from her previous comments and actions, but the vaping community activated and was determined to take her out of the equation before the next legislative session.
YOU VAPE, YOU VOTE!
A vaper who votes consistently is a much more influential advocate than one that doesn’t.
Why is that?
One thing many people don’t realize is that your voting record is available (not who you vote for, but whether you are registered and how often you vote and which elections you cast a vote in previously). A voter that casts a vote in every city, county, and state election (especially primaries!) is a much higher profile “constituent” than someone who doesn’t.
If you vape and care about your rights to continue to do so, please vote!
This is a form that US Citizens can use to register for nearly any state and it contains instructions and also some state-specific information, where applicable.
At this government website anyone can register to vote in any state with information on deadlines to register and which handful of states do not accept the national registration form (and how to register there, in those isolated cases).
It is time to start voting out the politicians that have acted against your interests as a user of vapor products and e-cigarettes. It is time for your voices to be heard, loud and clear.
Do you have a candidate that is pro-vapor?
It is impossible for us to keep track of all candidates because we can only be in so many places at any given time. If you have a pro-vape candidate that you think is deserving of the attention of vapers, please let us know!
Stay tuned as the Vapers Voting Guide works on an improved technical implementation and gears up for the next round of elections in which we intend to facilitate more vaper’s voices to be heard across the nation.
