On November 4, 2014, millions will cast their vote on various local issues while selecting from an array of candidates, potential leaders who will impact the direction of the United States of America. This is a freedom that has come at a high cost for many over the 238 years since declaring independence from England in 1776.
Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United States said, “If the people fail to vote, a government will be developed which is not their government… The whole system of American Government rests on the ballot box. Unless citizens perform their duties there, such a system of government is doomed to failure.”
Of the 52 million voter-eligible Christians in America, 10 million are not registered to vote for the elections, and over 20 million who were registered, did not vote in the previous election cycle. Quite simply, less than 40 percent of all eligible to vote Christians in America…voted. A new poll conducted by Harvard University's Institute of Politics estimates that just 23 percent of Americans 18-29 years old plan to vote in the midterm elections.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, 34th President of the United States said, “The future of this republic is in the hands of the American voter.”
