Maximize Your Voter Guide Experience
How to Get the Most Benefit from this Voter Guide
The core information in Church Voter Guides comes directly from the candidates themselves. We ask them questions, they answer (with a 120 word limit), and we publish their responses in our guides verbatim. In order to understand and utilize this information to the fullest, so that you may vote in the most informed way, we suggest the following:
1. Pray and ask the Almighty for discernment. The Kingdom of God is all about truth, while politics is a system fraught with compromise. Make sure you consider the candidates’ answers with a Heavenly mindset.
2. Ask yourself, “Did the candidate actually answer the question, or rather side-step it, or give a fluff, wishy-washy, and/or ‘political’ type answer that leaves you not really knowing where he/she truly stands on the issue?”
3. Learn more about the candidates in your school district, including their positions on issues we did not cover in our Questionnaire, by visiting their official campaign websites (if they have one.) The website URL for each candidate is listed in the Voter Guide.
5. Use search engines to find additional information about each candidate, including written articles and videos, other voter guides, and even voting records for those who have served in public office before. You may even want to watch online recordings of your local School Board meetings to see how incumbents conduct themselves and vote.
6. Reach out to the candidates themselves through the provided email addresses and other means, in order to ask them questions of personal importance to you. Please make sure to show great respect toward each candidate and his/her time, especially to those with whom you disagree. Running for office is hard, stressful, time-consuming work, and these are your fellow citizens who have lives, families, jobs…and feelings (just like you!)

Voting is a simple, yet significant way to do something about public policy in our country. As people of faith, we will be held accountable for our actions, as well as our lack of action. (Luke 12:48)
By diligently learning, applying, and trusting God’s truths in every area of our lives, we can begin to develop a deep comprehensive faith that will stand against the unrelenting tide of our culture’s non-biblical ideas.
Vote your values
The issues of the day change. Political parties and platforms change. God’s Word never changes. The vote of every Christian should be based on the principles of Scripture and not persuasive personalities.
Electing righteous leaders
Bad governance and our loss of freedom is the direct result of the church’s failure to disciple. When the citizenry do not seek to be obedient to God’s Law, they vote in wicked and corrupt candidates, who then trample underfoot the God-given liberties of the people.
