Why Voting Matters

For people of faith, it is important that we are civically engaged so that we can advocate for the good of our communities and neighbors. One of the first ways you can become civically engaged in your community is by registering yourself and others to vote! It’s vital that people eligible to vote exercise their right to vote in a free and fair election. Voting is the first step in getting your voice heard in your community. By working to elect someone who reflects your values, you help build a community that cares about all of its members and their ability to thrive.

How to Register to Vote 

If you’re a U.S. citizen, there are multiple ways you can register to vote, but the rules vary state-by-state. To be safe, it’s best to register as soon as possible. You can visit sojo.net/vote (in English) or sojo.net/vota (en español) to find more information on the easiest way for you to register. You can also learn more about your elected officials and candidates in upcoming elections.
