EPPN: Election day is Tuesday, Nov. 8

Vote, and vote faithfully

Posted Nov 7, 2016

[Episcopal Public Policy Network] Do not forget to cast your vote on or before Tuesday of this week. Voting is about caring for our neighbor, guiding the direction of public policy in our country, and stewardship of our world’s resources. To make sure you are prepared:

1. KNOW WHERE to vote. Refer to the map on our election engagement page for more information on where to cast your ballot.

2. RESEARCH THE CANDIDATES at local, state, and national levels to make an informed choice. Use our election engagement map to get a list of candidates by district.

3. RESEARCH BALLOT MEASURES at the local and state levels. The elections go beyond voting for candidates.

4. KNOW WHAT YOU NEED to take with you to the polls. Refer to the map on our election engagement page to search for details in your state.

5. VOTE! If you haven’t voted yet, make a plan to get to the polls on Tuesday. Check with your friends and consider going to the polls together. When you see people in church on Sunday, remind them about the election.

6. LET US KNOW once you’ve voted! Reach out to us on Facebook and Twitter (@theEPPN) using #EpiscopaliansVote when you do!

Presiding Bishop Michael Curry reminds us, “If we who are Christians participate in the political process and in the public discourse as we are called to do – the New Testament tells us that we are to participate in the life of the polis, in the life of our society – the principle on which Christians must vote is the principle, Does this look like love of neighbor?”

Vote, and vote faithfully.
