Your Vote is Your Voice – Don’t Give it Up!

An average election in the United States has around 60% of the eligible voting population turning out at the polls...With the rise in popularity of suppressive voting legislation, we may see an even lower turnout than normal in this election. What can we do to get out the vote? 

Don't give up your voice...And encourage others to vote too! Here are some helpful resources.

 

Creation Care Voter Pledge/Congregational Climate Justice Challenge

10 million voters who selected the environment as their #1 priority did not vote in 2016. Be the change! Vote your values; sign the SNEUCC Environmental Ministry Team's Creation Care Voter Pledge, and encourage others to do the same. 

Churches: Join the Congregation Climate Justice Voter Challenge by inspiring 75% of those worshipping with you to take the Creation Care Voter Pledge! 


Our Faith, Our Vote, Our Voice

From the United Church of Christ: The problems in our world often seem too big to confront. We see injustice every day and feel that change can’t or won’t happen. But our faith is infused with hope and built on a foundation of action. By serving the vulnerable, feeding the hungry, and standing in solidarity with the oppressed, we serve as God’s hands.

Vote Forward 

This organization has found 10 million people who are registered to vote but seldom if ever do.  Volunteers sign up to adopt several of these voters - 5, 20 or more - printing a letter encouraging them to vote. The volunteer adds two or three sentences of their own on why they vote in every election, before mailing the letter on a designated date.  Great way for individuals, families and congregations to get involved! Sign up at Vote Forward.
