"Once our eyes are opened, we cannot pretend we don't know what to do. God, who weighs our hearts and keeps our souls, knows that we know, and holds us responsible to act." Proverbs 24:12

Top 10 Reasons Christians Should Vote

Voting publicly recognizes that we submit to the authority of the political
system in our nation as established by God. - Romans 13:1-7

Voting recognizes the equality of all people and their right to speak and be
heard. - James 2:1

Voting is one way that we can obey God's command to seek the good of those
around us and our nation as a whole. - Philippians 2:3

Voting shows that we care deeply about who our leaders are as we are urged
to offer prayer and intercession on their behalf. - 1 Timothy 2:1,2

Voting is a simple yet significant way we can do something about politics in
our nation. " All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do
nothing" -  Edmund Burke. - (Psalms 34:14)

Voting makes a difference in the same way a grain of salt makes a
difference, and that is how we are to influence our society for good.
- Matthew 5:13

Voting is a privilege not to be taken for granted. Those of us who reap the
benefits of living in a democracy should play a part in upholding democracy.

Not voting is a form of voting, as it will influence the outcome. We need to
take responsibility for our actions, as well as our lack of actions. - I Peter

Voting is part of our stewardship to use all the resources we have been
given in ways that honor God; to waste a vote is to squander a gift.

Voting is Biblical. Jesus commands us to fulfill our responsibility to the
civil authority. - Matthew 22:21
