My Faith Votes: 'We Need to Stop Treating Midterm Elections As If They're Insignificant'
2018 will be the most consequential voting year the nation has seen in decades.

The power of unity truly does change everything and this includes at the ballot box. With the high-stakes midterm elections on the horizon—the burden is on believers to cast their vote. The organization, My Faith Votes, shares with us that many who voted in 2016, won't vote in 2018.
What is the importance of My Faith Votes?
My Faith Votes was born from the concern that there were 25 million evangelical Christians who were registered to vote but chose not to vote in the 2012 Presidential election. Christians could determine the outcome of every election just by showing up, but we've given up our influence in the public square. My Faith Votes is a non-partisan movement that represents 90 million Americans who stand for one name only, and that's Jesus. We recognize that voting represents more than a political preference, but a declaration for God and biblical values. Because we know that when 90 million believers stand to vote, we're standing in agreement. And the power of unity changes everything.
