In anticipation of Election Day on November 6, Bishop Burbidge and Bishop Knestout have issued a statement offering principles and observations to the faithful of their dioceses on exercising the right to vote with a conscience formed through prayer, attentiveness to the Church’s teachings, and understanding issues and candidates’ positions on them.
See their statement in English here and Spanish (coming soon).
