Catholics are called to be faithful citizens. We have a moral obligation to inform our consciences and cast our ballots in civil elections.
But no one can exercise their faithful citizenship in the voting booth without first properly registering to vote. There are several ways to do it:
- Visit your county voter registration office in person.
- Download the voter registration application, complete it, sign it and mail it in.
- Or sign up in person at a voter registration drive.
As a service to the Catholic community, the Bishops of Pennsylvania through the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference are partnering with the Knights of Columbus to organize nonpartisan voter registration drives in many parishes during the month of September.
Please also read these political activity guidelines for Catholic entities. These guidelines are designed to assist Catholics in engaging in important and legitimate political activities while avoiding the pitfalls.
Watch your parish bulletin for more details and stay tuned to pacatholic.org for information about specific candidates in the coming weeks.
