Are you sure all your friends, family members and fellow church attendees are actually registered to vote?
The word around the internet is that about half of U.S. churchgoers are still unregistered. That means millions of people of faith are forfeiting their voice at election time. God has willed that you and I be born at this strategic time in world history and be “salt and light” where we live and work. We must be good stewards of the political freedoms and opportunities we have to make our voices heard in elections that determine whether our country
- honors the sanctity of life and marriage,
- confirms judges who won’t legislate from the bench as judicial activists,
- reigns in out-of-control spending which burdens today’s families and future generations, and
- stands up for God’s people (the Jews) and our ally, Israel.
In order to restore America’s greatness and biblical, founding principles, we must make sure we and our families and fellow church attendees are registered to vote. After that, we need to become informed and involved in the election process.
Recent federal laws have made voting registration easier than ever. There’s a national registration form – VIEW HERE – or you may choose to use a state specific form you can get from your county or state voter offices. The IRS says church voter-registration drives are legal, and even encouraged, as long as they’re nonpartisan and don’t endorse or oppose candidates.
