With sportsmen issues becoming more prevalent in today’s elections, InterMedia Outdoors is pleased to announce the launch of sportsmenvote.com — a new website dedicated to sportsmen and the issues that will affect them most in the 2012 election.
“Our goal is to make sportsmenvote.com a resource for America’s 80 million sportsmen,” says Todd Smith, vice president of content development. “We’re not taking sides or endorsing anyone. We’re simply creating the place for sportsmen to learn about the issues that concern them most, find out where the candidates stand on those issues and make their voices heard.”
A variety of interactive features makes sportsmenvote.com uniquely positioned to cover politics from a sportsman’s perspective. Key drivers on the site include:
- Exclusive polls showing real-time results on how sportsmen feel about key issues such as gun control, public-land access and how America can balance the preservation of wildlife habitat with our nation’s need for energy development.
- A vibrant news feed that will continually update sportsmen on all the issues of interest to hunters, fishermen, shooters, and wildlife conservationists.
- An interactive “Candidate Match” tool that matches users to the presidential candidates.
- A special panel of industry experts to provide unique perspectives spanning a wide range of sportsman issues from clean water to the second amendment. Panelists will include leaders such as Jeff Crane, president of the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation, and Steve Sanetti, president and CEO of the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
