TITUSVILLE, FL -- Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, today urged eligible voters in South Carolina, Colorado, New York, Maryland, Oklahoma, Utah and Mississippi to make sure to get to the polls to vote in primary elections.

“Just as we have a moral obligation to vote in general elections, we also have a moral obligation to vote in the primaries,” Father Pavone said. “We are never free to ignore an election.”

Priests for Life has been sending action alerts and parish email blasts and faxes to make sure voters in each state are kept abreast of important dates and issues, and that pastors are preparing their people to take part in the elections.

“It is not partisan politics for the clergy to prepare their people to vote; it is, rather, a pastoral activity to equip God’s people to make a difference in society,” he said. “To remind them when voter registration deadlines and voting periods are occurring is something every parish should be doing – unless, of course, we want to make the Church irrelevant to the daily life of our nation and its citizens.”

Noting that political pundits have already decided the winners in some of the races for U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives, Father Pavone said voters should not let these predictions convince them to stay away from the ballot box.

“We don’t have to look back any farther than the 2016 presidential race to see how wrong pundits and polls can be,” he said. “The stakes are very high for the unborn in November, and voters in these five states can lay the groundwork for victory by casting their ballots today.”

At ProLifeVote.com voters in all states can see the “What Comes Next” calendar to keep track of primary dates, voter registration deadlines and when early voting begins in their states.
