Update from the United Church of Christ Our Faith, Our Vote Campaign
Over 200 UCC churches have joined the Our Faith Our Vote Campaign, and the number grows daily! Pentecost Sunday, May 30 was the first UCC Voter Registration Sunday that will be happening across the country in 2004. On Voter Registration Sunday, churches can set up voter registration tables in the Narthex or the Fellowship Hall or can pass out voter registration cards in the worship service. Many UCC congregations will also be organizing voter registration drives in the community at fairs, sporting events and neighborhood festivals.
To participate, you can download the Organizers Kit from this site, set up a table, and use July 4 or any other Sunday to announce your presence in your church and recruit volunteers to work with you on voter registration in the community. Buttons can be sent to you by contacting Jessica Leischner at firstname.lastname@example.org. To get ready for your voter registration drive, you will need to contact your local elections office and get registration forms for your county and state and find out any additional local information that you will need to register voters. The Getting Started document in the organizers kit has everything you need to prepare for voter registration in your church. May God be with you in your important work!
