STATEN ISLAND, NY --
For people who believe in the sanctity of all human life, Nov. 6, Election Day,
will be the most important day of the year.
“With just 100 days
to go, we all need to make sure we’re doing everything we can to encourage
friends, family members, co-workers – everyone we know -- to make plans to get out and vote,” said
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life.
Here’s a checklist
of things everyone can do to ensure a high voter turnout.
*Organize a voter
registration drive at your church on Sept. 9,. Voter Registration Sunday (www.priestsforlife.org/vote).

will turn 18 by Election Day to register.

for transporting senior citizens and those without transportation to the polls.

will be away on Election Day to obtain absentee ballots.
