Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 2

Be sure to vote!

Dear Fellow Rider,

There is just a week left before Election Day. That means there are just seven days left to identify motorcycle-friendly candidates to support and then vote for, and to encourage others to do the same. More info.

Elections are the voting public’s opportunity to select their leaders. Leaders who will make laws that may expand or limit the riding community’s freedoms for years to come. Therefore, it is critical for motorcyclist to identify motorcycle-friendly candidates, assist their run for office, Vote Like A Motorcyclist, and encourage their fellow riders to also Vote Like A Motorcyclist.

Please note, the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA) is a nonpartisan organization and does not endorse political candidates. However, we encourage riders to cast their ballots based on candidates' positions on motorcycling-related issues, as well as other issues of importance to them.

Please join the AMA’s Vote Like A Motorcyclist campaign and utilize some or all of our election-related tools:
