Pray for Peaceful & Just Elections

October 13, 2020
By Sister Ruth Battaglia, CSA

We The People

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.

We Pray

Help our leaders be willing to walk alongside each other, their constituents, and especially the marginalized. Our leaders have different opinions and priorities; give them the wisdom to navigate differences and work together to strengthen our country. Remind us in this election year that You have called all to be one body.

Share Step-by-Step instructions for Voting Absentee

Election workers in 2020 are literally putting their lives on the line by working at the polls. Here is an example of how easy your instructions can be to help increase voter turnout while still reducing risk to election workers:

  1. Find your Drivers License/Photo ID
  2. Grab your smartphone*
  3. Use your phone to visit: https://myvote.wi.gov/ **
  4. Choose “Vote Absentee”
  5. Follow the prompts

* Doing it from your phone will make it easier to upload a photo of your drivers license/photo ID.
** If you're not in Wisconsin, head here and choose the correct state: https://www.usa.gov/election-office
