Biblical Voter describes itself as a “one-source destination for Judeo-Christian voter guides and election tools” by compiling local, state and national voter guides” on its website to make voting for believers a simple and painless process.

The Christian website prides itself in drawing the most reliable and recognized faith-conscious resources together, including voter guides for all 50 states produced by iVoterGuide, Eagle Forum, My Faith Votes, Catholic Vote and other top national providers – in addition to regional selections.

What it looks like …

Biblical Voter revealed that its “easy-to-use-menu” helps voters navigate to the areas in which they need assistance, with selections including:

  • Voter guides
  • Voter registration
  • Election videos
  • Party platform comparisons
  • Polling locations
  • Legal dos and don’ts for churches
  • Pre-written election speeches and sermons for pastors

Biblical Voter President Dran Reese was excited to introduce the Biblical Voter Registration Kit, which was designed to be easy to set up for new registrations.

"We trademarked the word biblical with voter registration to make it simple for churches to understand that voting is biblical and essential,” Reese explained in her website’s press release.

Getting the word out

Included in the website experience are relevant Scriptures, along with talking points and guides for pastors and leaders who want to get the word out and encourage believers to vote biblically.

One of the biblical guides, titled, "60+ Contrasts That Tip the Scales of Justice – Historical, Constitutional, and Moral Contrasts of the Two Major Parties," was created by Bishop Art Hodges – superintendent of So. Cal. District of United Pentecostal Church International – in order to show the true spiritual dichotomy between the Republican and Democratic parties.

"One mentions faith 26 times, the other 11 times [and] one party platform believes that sanctity of life is an inalienable right, opposes euthanasia and assisted suicide; the other doesn't," Hodges’ guide informs voters.

The creators of the new website had Christian voters in mind – believers who often don’t have enough time to do their own thorough research to align their faith with all their selections before election day.

“Biblical Voter was developed for those who tend to make last-minute voting decisions or select candidates based on personal appeal,” the release noted. “The goal is to marry faith to the vote and increase the value of understanding how critical one single vote can be to election outcomes. [It is designed] for voters searching for the best and most shareable resources that align with God's non-negotiable moral values.”
