voting in AmericaChurches are being urged to have at least one voter registration drive before the November elections.

It's a rallying cry heard every four years: "This election is the most important in our lifetime." But House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy says this time around, it feels different:

McCarthy (on Fox News Channel): "If we do not win this election, I don't know if we'll have an opportunity to win it again, because they will change the rules of the game."

My Faith Votes CEO Jason Yates feels it too – "It feels like the election of our lifetime," he tells OneNewsNow – and says he came across a disappointing statistic from a Pew Research poll recently:

Yates

"States that have high church attendance have low voter turnout – and states with low church attendance have high voter turnout," he summarizes.

His non-profit would like to turn those numbers around in 2020 – especially in 2020.

"We're asking every church across America to engage their congregation in voting," Yates informs. "It's the number-one topic in our nation, and we should all be bringing the influence of our faith into elections."

Toward that end, the website OurChurchVotes.org – an initiative led by Yates and several nationally known pastors – includes registration forms and tips on how to make a voter registration drive at a church successful. As for how to vote?

"We just simply want to call people to vote – and to vote from a biblical worldview versus their partisan worldview," he replies.
