iCAN Election Action Toolkit
This summer we have a unique and valuable opportunity. This summer we will be called to participate in our democracy and in the fall elect leaders who represent and will be champions of the values that we hold dear. When we encourage broader engagement with the electoral process we ensure that more voices are heard in political decision-making. During campaign season there will be many opportunities to hear from candidates (while they are knocking on doors, speaking at forums and debates, and making phone calls).
Congregations around Minnesota can be a powerful force for civic participation among faithful citizens. Below are resources for congregation to use to get involved in the electoral process:
One of the moste effective ways that congregations can be part of the electoral process is to help register people in their community to vote. Below are some resources about how to help register people in your area:
- MN Secretary of State information on Voter Registration
- Register to Vote Online Materials Here
- Information on Absentee Ballot Voting
