EVC
Listed below is the contact information for your congressional district’s Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC). Your EVC acts as the liaison between NRA members & gun owners in your district and various pro-freedom campaigns. The main goal of an EVC is to provide these campaigns with dedicated, educated volunteers to assist with phone banks, literature drops, precinct walks, voter registration, Election Day activities, and other campaign volunteer activities.

In the 2000 elections, NRA members played an integral role in changing the course of history for the Second Amendment. Through your tireless efforts and willingness to volunteer, we ended eight long years of the Clinton-Gore regime, and put in the White House someone who understands, appreciates, and respects our firearms heritage. President George W. Bush’s administration reversed the bogus interpretation of its predecessor’s, that the Second Amendment was a “collective right,” by boldly asserting that the Second Amendment means what the drafters of the Constitution said, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.“

With all the hard work you displayed in 2000 and the benefits gun owners are reaping from your efforts, we can’t stop now. We must finish the fight!

Even if you can spare only an hour a week, or a couple of days between now and November 5, your EVC needs to hear from you. If the future or our Second Amendment rights aren’t worth a few hours of your time, what is?

(NOTE: If an EVC vacancy exists in your district, call ILA Grassroots at (800) 392-VOTE (8683) to learn what you can do locally to assist pro-freedom campaigns in your area.)

Back to topGRADES


Here’s What the Ratings Mean:

A+   An incumbent with not only an excellent voting record on critical NRA issues, but who has also made a vigorous effort to promote the Second Amendment.

A   Solidly pro-gun candidate. An “A” incumbent who has supported NRA positions on key votes. May also describe a non-incumbent “A” candidate (one not represented with an *) who has previously held other office and cast consistent pro-gun votes, or an “A” candidate who hasn’t held office but has expressed strong support for NRA positions on Second Amendment issues. It should be noted that a “non-incumbent” candidate may have been awarded the “A” rating due solely to their responses on the NRA-PVF candidate survey.

B   A generally pro-gun candidate, but a “B” incumbent may have voted for some restrictive legislation in the past. A “B” candidate who hasn’t held office may have made some statements or taken positions against the NRA on some issues.

C   Not necessarily a passing grade. A “C” candidate may have cast some pro-gun votes in the past but has also recently cast key votes or made some statements contrary to NRA positions on key issues.

D   An anti-gun candidate who has frequently voted for restrictive gun control legislation or made strong statements in opposition to Second Amendment rights, and regardless of public statements can definitely not be counted on in key votes.

F   True enemy of gun owners’ rights. A vehement anti-gun candidate who always opposes gun owners’ rights and/or actively leads anti-gun legislative efforts, or sponsors anti-gun legislation.

?   Failed to answer NRA-PVF candidate questionnaire, often an indication of indifference, if not outright hostility, to gun owners’ and sportsmen’s rights.

*   Indicates an incumbent running for re-election.

NRA members should be aware that Libertarian candidates as a rule are pro-gun.
