CVN Voting Statement
We recognize that this is a year unlike any other. For many CVN partners and volunteers across the globe, this may be your first national election. For those of us with the privilege to vote, we have the responsibility to use that power in the service of our national community. As CVN members and volunteers, many of you work to serve communities on the margins whose dignity has been denied. We encourage you to endeavor in remembering the lessons, stories, and individuals whose lives have impacted you as you discern using your power to vote.
Accessing the vote is more challenging than ever before. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the landscape by which we exercise this important power. To find out how you can best access the vote in your state use the National Voter Registration Day website to find out how to register or how to request a mail-in ballot.
With God’s help, may the witness of our communities and our vote create a more just world.
