Elections decide the future of our country and, therefore, of our families.
With that in mind, I just checked our MCFL list of pro-lifers and I couldn't believe what I found! There are 25% of us who are not registered to vote. That is a bit lower than the state as a whole, but I still find it amazing because I know pro-lifers care about the country and their families. I know pro-lifers understand that the laws passed by our elected officials have saved millions of babies. I know that pro-lifers care about who is on the Supreme Court, which is appointed by elected officials.
Having said all that, I understand the upcoming Presidential election may not attract you, but keep in mind that all of our state legislators will be elected at the same time.
Even if you don't own a car, you know it is a good idea to have a driver's license. Even if you are not thrilled by the candidates, it is a good idea to be registered.
We also must be aware that Doctor-Prescribed Suicide will most likely be on the ballot again in 2018. By then every one of us must be registered, so let's get started!
The last date to register to vote in the September 8 primary election is this Friday, August 19.
Almost everyone can register right online at the Secretary of State’s web site, but if you can’t there is a mail-in option. If you do want to got to your Town Hall, they will be open until 9pm on Friday. (You must be 18 to vote, but can pre-register at 16 for when you do turn 18.)
We must get that 25% down to 0%! Let's get started!
