“The vote is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have”

Since last week, I have been wearing my “I voted” sticker on my Nike  “just do it” cap!
 
The “I voted” sticker reminds me of the prophetic words of John Lewis:  
 
“The vote is precious. It is almost sacred.
The vote is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have.”
 
Let’s exercise our faith by voting:
  • If you’re eligible to vote and aren’t registered yet to vote, you will need to do same-day voter registration. For more info, click here.
  • If you’re registered to vote and did not receive your ballot in the mail, call the Alameda County Registrar of Voters asap at 510-272-6973.
  • If you have your ballot, you can drop it by an official Alameda County Ballot Drop Box (or mail it). You can find the closest official drop box to you at this link.
 
I encourage you to review the resources shared by our Justice and Witness team chair, Nancy Taylor, and also review these sources California Council of Churches, the League of Women Voters of California, and the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California).
 
If you’re eligible to vote, please vote. Encourage others to vote. Pray for each other and the nation. Vote with your heart, your mind, your soul, your courage, and your faith. Voting is a civic sacrament.
 
“The vote is precious. It is almost sacred.
The vote is the most powerful nonviolent tool we have.”
 
Just do it!
