Be a Well-informed Voting Catholic

It is usually said every time, “This is the most important election ever.”  But this is one of the few areas where Republicans and conservatives, Democrats and liberals as well as Independents and Libertarians agree.  Be sure to vote this year.  It IS important.

With all the misleading advertising and “spin” coming at us from all directions, it is important now more than ever to become and be a well informed voting Catholic.  Here are three links to assist you in preparing to exercise our citizenship.
