Election 2020: Pray, Then Vote

On Tuesday, November 3, 2020, Americans will exercise their right to vote. Please keep our nation in prayer as voters weigh their decisions.

Here in New York, elections will be held for President of the United States, for all 27 New York seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, for the New York State Legislature (Senate and Assembly), and for various local offices.

If you are a registered voter, if you have not submitted an absentee ballot, and if you did not use the early voting process, please make it a priority to go to the polls tomorrow. Polls are open from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Our democratic republic depends on citizen input. As Christians, we are responsible to influence the culture and society around us in a godly manner. Voting is a very important way of exercising that influence. To view a list of federal and state candidates, please click here. To find your polling place, please click here.

It is also important to exercise good stewardship over our voting rights by being informed voters. If we vote without informing ourselves, we may unintentionally waste our votes or even advance ungodly agendas. One way to inform yourself about candidates on the ballot is to use New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation’s nonpartisan voter guide. This user-friendly online resource offers information about the candidates and their views on a wide range of key issues. Information on candidates is obtained from the Board of Elections, from legislators’ voting records, from online research by our staff, and from the candidates themselves.
