On November 5th, 2024, the United States will once again head to the ballot boxes to vote for new leaders. From the President of the United States at the top of the ballot, to the many local boards and sheriffs, this election will have an impact on the years ahead.
But before we get to the Big Day, we need to choose the names on the ballot. And here is where things can get confusing. With over a dozen possible candidates on each side, we also get an equal number of nuances on every major topic.
If you’ve ever looked at the list of political hopefuls and thought “But which one will stand up for the Police?”, then we have a tool for you: American Police Officers Alliance’s 2024 Voter Guide.
What Will You Find in Our 2024 Voter Guide?
Our latest Voter Guide builds on the same spirit of our previous Voter Guides. However, we have re-examined where we’re standing as a country and tried to predict which will be the major battles for the next cycle.
The result of this analysis? Extra information on two key hot-button issues:
The Second Amendment: From State Courts enforcing one interpretation of our Constitution, to brave Sheriffs standing up for American rights, this is a classic case of the “freedom versus safety” dichotomy. Rest assured, it will continue defining the character and lifestyles of Small Town America and its Police Departments.
The aftermath of Defunding the Police. Between 2018 and 2022, the Anti-Police Movement laid siege on law enforcement officers, police equipment budgets, and even our relationship with local communities. It’s too soon to see the full price, but in many areas, there’s still time to reverse the damage and stop it from spreading to new communities.
What Should You Do With This Information?
The most crucial action you can take? VOTE.
And we don’t just mean on November 5th. The agenda for the Presidential Election will be shaped by the primaries before it, which will start in a few months. And don’t forget that on the same day, you will also likely be electing your local leaders, or even directly approving ballot initiatives and amendments that will impact your community and your local police department.It’s a lot to keep track of, but we’re here to help.
