One of the things that makes the UCC’s Our Faith Our Vote Campaign so strong is our many partnerships. We have joined with partners from organizations across the country all fighting for the right to vote and have our voices heard. We would like to tell you about a few of those partnerships, and ask you to join us in the action!
Faiths United to Save Democracy
We are allied with Faiths United to Save Democracy because we know, “this battle is far too big for any one racial, ethnic, or faith group to fight alone.” Faiths United to Save Democracy has put out a call for poll chaplains in ten priority states (AL, AZ, FL, GA, MI, NC, OH, PA, TX, WI) to serve as a moral presence & support at the polls for vulnerable voters. Would you, or someone you know, be interested in signing up? Learn more.

Vote Early Day
We have also partnered with Vote Early Day, “a nonpartisan movement of media companies, businesses, nonprofits, election administrators, and creatives working to ensure all Americans have the tools to vote early.” By making an effort to vote early, we can ensure last-minute problems will not prevent us from casting our ballots, and we help shorten lines to vote on Election Day! Learn more and find out where you can vote early!
We believe that voting is a sacred right, and that everyone deserves to be able to cast their ballot and have their voice be heard in free, fair, and safe elections. With the midterm elections less than 50 days away, now is the time to mobilize! Get involved through one of the partnerships above, or with the many more resources on our website.
