Prayerfully prepare to vote: Read bishops’ letter and other VCC resources
Election Day is November 8. Early voting begins later this week, on September 23.
Virginia voters will choose representatives for all 11 of the Commonwealth’s U.S. congressional districts, and also make selections for other offices in some localities.
To help you prepare, here are:
- A pre-election letter issued by Bishop Burbidge and Bishop Knestout (English) (Spanish)
- A Register to Vote flyer on how to register, eligibility and key dates (English) (Spanish)
- A Four Principles of Catholic Social Teaching resource that we first developed in 2017 and are now re-issuing (English) (Spanish)
Each of these resources is authorized for parish use and fits onto one sheet of paper for convenient printing.
Please review these materials. Share them with family and friends too, and remind them to pray, form their consciences and vote!

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
The Virginia Catholic Conference is the public policy agency representing Virginia’s Catholic bishops and their two dioceses.
