Election Day 2016: Doing Our Civic Duty

RMEF Family,

America is a great country! Sure, we have our challenges but we all have the ability to have our voices heard and we can make a difference.

Now is the time for each of us to step up and help shape our shared future by carrying out our civic duty as we head to the polls. As you do so, please make sure you are informed about candidates. The leaders we elect will determine a direction for the future.

Same thing goes for the issues. There are many initiatives, amendments and proposals in many different states that could have dramatic effects on our landscapes, wildlife, conservation efforts, hunting and fishing. 

I am especially grateful for our military members who have served and continue to serve our country. It is their selfless service that allows us the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. 


David Allen
RMEF President & CEO


  1. I apllaud the fact that you encourage people to exercise their privilege to vote without feeling the need to tell them who to vote for. What a great organization!

  2. By way of information, as a 501(c)3 public, charitable nonprofit organization, RMEF is prohibited to be involved in "electioneering." In other words, we cannot support or endorse political candidates in any race on any level.
