Pray for Peaceful & Just Elections
We invite you share in a simple five minutes of individual contemplative silence at whatever time you choose each Tuesday leading up to election day.
Want to take another action for peaceful and just elections? Each week, we’ll provide an action item - some will be much easier to do than others - participate in the actions as you are able.
Lord God, as the election approaches, we seek to better understand the issues and concerns that confront our city/state/country, and how the Gospel compels us to respond as faithful citizens in our community.
Check Your ID Requirements & Talk to 10 Friends
Does your state require a photo ID at the polls? You can find out here. Talk to your friends to see if they have the necessary and unexpired ID to vote. Registration requires that you show proof of your identity (a photo ID) and proof that your live in the district where you are registering. If your photo ID includes your address, then it can be used to prove both. If your photo ID has an old address, be sure to bring some other way to prove your residence, such as your vehicle registration, a bank statement, or even a hunting license.
