For millions of people in other parts of the world, voting is just a dream. Still, many Americans with the right to vote are not acting on that right.
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as many as 29% of citizens were not registered to vote in 2008 – that’s 60 million people! More than one-third of eligible voting citizens did not vote in the last presidential election.
As Christ’s representatives on earth, Christians have a mandate to be the “salt and light” in our culture (Matthew 5:13-16). Since this is a presidential election year, we have the opportunity to positively impact the direction of our country, the men and women who lead it, and the policies they enact.
Will you commit to register, and to vote (your values) on November 6?
