Citizenship Matters to the Christ-follower

From her "Capital Prayer Alert" dated 8.09.10, an email by Carol Bauer:
As I look to Election Day 2010 -- November 2nd -- two figures come to my mind.  First, 38.4 percent of eligible voters did not cast a ballot for president in 2008.  In a year when the races for the White House and Congress cost $5.3 billion, political ads permeated television and radio, print ads filled mail boxes and voter outreach was unprecedented, nearly 4 in 10 eligible voters chose not to exercise this precious right... 
Second, and worse yet, 39.9 percent of eligible voters did not vote in the last mid-term election in 2006.  You will recall that the leadership in Congress changed hands in that election and then proceeded to lay the groundwork for some of the sweeping policy changes of the past couple years.  

Are you registered? Register. Pray. Vote. God will take care of the rest. (Romans 13)
