National Council of Churches | Oct 22, 2018
No election will solve all problems, but consistent voting is the ongoing participation in a process that inherently values the voice and dignity of each person. It is a faithful Christian practice. It includes and supports those on the margins. It promotes the health, prosperity, and continuity of our nation. It is a reflection of how our civic and religious lives are intrinsically entwined. By exercising our responsibility to vote we faithfully live out our call to love our neighbor. For all of these reasons and more, the NCC calls on its member denominations to urge congregations to vote, to support others in voting, and to call on state and local governments to facilitate the unobstructed voting of all citizens on November 6th.
