NRA Board of Directors Election


A new year, a new election. If you’re eligible to vote for the 2018 National Rifle Association Board of Directors, you recently received a ballot via your preferred NRA magazine. There’s a total of 76 seats on the NRA Board of Directors, and each year 25 seats are up for election to a 3-year term (with one seat filled to a 1-year term by a vote of members attending the Annual Meeting).

Therefore, with a total 26 open seats in 2018, it’s important to select the most qualified and proactive individuals for the available spots on the board. If you’d like some insight regarding candidates, we at Silencer Shop proudly endorse the following three distinguished individuals for election.

Mr. Bach (New Jersey) is running for re-election to the NRA Board of Directors, where he continues his nearly two-decade fight for our God-given right to bear arms.
