Election Day Is Coming - Get Out and Vote!
Tuesday, November 3rd, is Election Day. Knights are urged to exercise their civil right and vote in national, state, and local elections. This begins by confirming your voter registration and, if not registered, to register, AND to encourage eligible family members and friends to do the same. To assist members and their families, the Knights of Columbus maintains a dedicated webpage that contains resources to assist in confirming voter registration or to register to vote – kofc.org/vote.
Regrettably, not all citizens exercise this fundamental civil liberty, which so many have given so much to uphold throughout the history of our nation. Voter turnout rates have ranged from 50 to 60 percent in the past several years. In a year of uncertainty due to the pandemic, the turnout rate could be even lower. As patriotic Catholics, we are grateful to live in a country where we have the right to vote – and the freedom to encourage all those voters around us to vote as well. That is why the Knights of Columbus sponsors its “Nonpartisan National Get Out and Vote Program,” which aims to increase voter participation in the electoral process.
Through this program, brother Knights can assist eligible voters who may lack access to the critical information necessary to ensure all may freely cast their ballot by referring them to nonpartisan resources available at kofc.org/vote - whether voting by mail, absentee ballot or at a polling place. Working together, brother Knights can make history by improving voter participation in their communities because Every. Vote. Matters.
