A Call to Action: “Reclaim Our Vote”

Updated October 30, 2020

“RECLAIM OUR VOTE” Postcard Mailing Campaign

Our humble gratitude is extended to the Northminster Presbyterian Church Community for your prayers and participation in the historic “Reclaim Our Vote” Postcard Campaign 2020. We successfully wrote and mailed 1,000 Postcards to voters in the state of Georgia. To learn more about the Center For Common Ground and to track voter information before and after November 3, 2020, please visit the website http://centerforcommonground.org/main/index.php/campaigns/reclaim-our-vote.

In addition to Reclaim Our Vote, the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is committed to taking a continued stand for equity and equality for all God’s people. Seeking to be a faithful witness to the need to continue to stand and bear witness in issues of justice, the Presbyterian Voting Campaign has been created to engage, educate, and motivate people to exercise their right to vote, especially those who are a part of marginalized communities. The call to challenge current voter disenfranchisement and government’s collusion with corporate wealth continue to be at the center of our special emphasis throughout the PC(USA)’s Season of Peace, which began on Sunday, Sept. 6, 2020. For a comprehensive listing of events scheduled throughout the month of October, please visit PCUSA’s website at: www.pcusa.org/vote

Only a few days until the election! Here are a few tips to remember when casting your ballot:

  • Make sure to read and follow all instructions on your absentee ballot.
  • Remember to sign your absentee ballot.
  • If you can, turn your absentee ballot in at drop a off location. Visit your state’s Board of Elections website to find absentee ballot drop off locations in your area.
  • Some states require absentee ballots to be postmarked by election day or the day before; other states require absentee ballots to be received by the election. If mailing your ballot, check your state’s Board of Elections website to find more information about the absentee ballot deadline.
  • If you are voting in person, visit your state’s Board of Elections website to find out your city’s early and same-day in-person voting locations.
  • If you are not registered to vote, seven states have same-day registration. Check www.vote.org to see if you live in one of those states.
