Voter Registration Deadline Days Away! Are You Registered?

March 16, 2012

This year, the Pennsylvania Presidential Primary is a competitive one. Make sure you get out to vote in April!

You’ll get to vote for president of the United States, but will also vote on offices closer to home: your state representative and state senator, US representative in Congress and US senator.

Read the news on any given day and you’ll find that often it is local officials that make decisions that directly affect you, your family, your business, your church and your neighbors.

How are your elected officials doing to represent your values? You can become part of the answer only if you’re firstregistered to vote by March 26th, then get out and vote on Election Day! If you’ll be 18 by Election Day, make sure you register as well!

Are you registered to vote? How about your family, friends and church? Did you know polls show that as many as half of those sitting around us in our churches either are not registered to vote or don’t show up at the polls?! You can help change that!

Hold a “Voter Registration Sunday.” The registration deadline is next Monday, March 26, so you only have this Sunday, March 18 and next Sunday, March 25, advertise it in your church bulletin with the help of your pastor, set up a small table with the forms and information and you’re set! Just be sure to get those forms back to the county elections offices by March 27th.

You can find voter registration forms at your local County board of elections or online at www.votespa.com.

Watch for Pennsylvania Family Institute’s 2012 Primary Voters’ Guide for the April 24 Primary Electionavailable online at www.PAFamily.org before the election.

March 22, 2010

My good friend Lee Wishing of Grove City College’s Center for Vision and Values wrote a great piece on last night’s Obamacare vote, and the deceitfulness of those who advanced it. It appears in today’s WORLD magazine blog.
