Voter Registration Sunday is this Sunday – that’s 48 hours till our second designated date to help local church members register and get ready to vote! If you didn’t get a chance to participate in Voter Registration Sunday in September, now is a great time to participate.* Of course, any Sunday is a good Sunday for voter registration – but many states have registration deadlines as soon as this Monday, so we encourage you to participate soon.
*Be sure to check that your state is still doing mail registrations. Our easy-to-use guide includes a list of states with early registration cutoffs for your convenience.
Here’s what you need to know:
- It’s biblical – and legal!
The Bible commands us to fulfill our civic duties (Romans 13) and to seek the welfare of the city – or nation! (Jeremiah 29:7). Voting is a practical and important way to do both of those things. God commands us to honor our authorities, and in America we are privileged to be able to weigh in on who those authorities should be. Each Christian in America should participate in voting!
Additionally, hosting a non-partisan voter registration at church is IRS-approved. Our quick guide provides more detail.
- It’s easy.
This year, we’re offering multiple free and easy-to-use tools to set up your Voter Registration Sunday.

- It can make a difference.
Did you know? It’s estimated that over 25 million Christians didn’t vote in the last presidential election in 2016. Even more troubling is the latest data showing that atheists are the most politically active “religious” group in America.
We need your help to turn the tide in this election.
Life is on the ballot – not our own lives, but those of the unborn.
It’s time for the Church to engage in a big way. Will you help make that happen?
