We are blessed to have a voice in this country through the voting process. Voting determines who will govern us. With so many conflicting advertisements and accusations being aired today, it can be confusing to glean out the truth and identify exactly where candidates stand on the issues.
We have been asked questions about voter registration and for voter guides this year. Thankfully, there are many resources available to help you understand more clearly where the candidates stand on the issues. In light of that, we thought it wise to send out the following information to help the church learn about where candidates actually do stand on the issues - as well as to inform you of the various voting options available.
This election looks to be one of the most decisive we have faced in our lifetime. May God stir your heart to get out and vote this November. May you seek candidates who reflect God’s principles for choosing life and who govern with a fear of God.
It's important to learn where the candidates stand on issues:
- Biblical Voter is a helpful website that has simple links to sites where you can learn about the candidates.
- Vision America has prepared a short synopsis in a handy and easy-to-read chart of the two main presidential candidates' positions on various issues.
- PAFamilyVoter.com provides a free, personalized Voter Guide. This is only available for Pennsylvania residents.
Go to your polling place on November 3. This is the most certain way to vote to ensure that your ballot is counted.
If you are unable to go to the polls on Election Day, PA offers two other options:
- Mail-in voting: a ballot requested without supplying a reason
- Absentee voting: a ballot requested if you have a disability or will be out of the area on Election Day.
- Click here to apply for a Mail-In or Absentee Ballot.
- If you have your unvoted ballot and the envelope bring them to the polling place, surrender the ballot, and you can vote using a regular ballot.
- If you do not have your ballot you may vote at the polling place using a provisional ballot. For more information about a provisional ballot, click here.
If you choose to vote by mail-in or absentee ballot in PA, voters may return their mail-in or absentee ballot at their county election board's designated drop box(es) or dropoff location before 8 p.m. on election day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020.
