Every Vote Counts

The 2012 election is important to TIA, its members, U.S. businesses, and the nation as a whole. Education and action are the key to ensuring leaders are elected who will reflect our individual preferences.

This “Election Resource Guide” provides TIA members and their employees with resources that identify how legislators and candidates stand on key issues. TIA staff has attempted to identify only well-respected, non-partisan information and voter guides that span National, State and local elections. Also included are reminders on how to register to vote. Every vote counts … members of the toy industry can – and will – have an impact on the outcome of the 2012 election.
