Today is National Voter Registration Day, a national day of action to increase participation in our democracy.
As part of our Faith Climate Justice Voter Campaign, Interfaith Power & Light partnered with When We All Vote to provide us with our own voter registration portal that allows people to check their voter registration status or register to vote.
Participate in this national day of action by visiting our portal right now to check your voter registration status or register to vote.
Why check if you’re an experienced voter? Well, a lot has happened since the last election. Some have moved, changed their name, turned 18, or attained citizenship. Individuals who were previously incarcerated may now be eligible to vote. And it’s possible some of us may have been “purged” from the voting rolls. Now is the time to find out!
As the world continues to reel from climate disasters, from Pakistan to Puerto Rico to California, we hope historic numbers of people vote with climate in mind this year.
We encourage you to text or email weall.vote/ipl to three friends or family members and ask them to check their voter registration status too.
We believe our right to vote is sacred, a privilege and an obligation. When we all vote, society will better reflect our shared values.
This year so much is at stake. The results could have enormous repercussions on how we care for Creation, and whether we deliver climate justice for our most vulnerable neighbors.
