ELECTIONS
WHY ELECTIONS?

The FAMiLY Leader was founded in 1996 to advance God-honoring, righteous policy. But experience taught us that without righteous leaders to enact and enforce that policy, even the best of bills and laws eventually fall. TFL, therefore, works to identify and equip Christ-like public servants to run for elected office. And we actively work with pastors and the public to encourage Christians everywhere to engage with government and steward God’s gift of their vote to honor the One who gave it to them.

HOW DO I VOTE?

There are 3 steps to voting in Iowa. The first step is registering to vote. You can do this online, through the mail, or at the polls on Election Day. Second, choose which option you prefer for voting: absentee or at the polls. Finally, if voting in person, remember to bring your ID. Iowa’s Secretary of State has a helpful website – VoterReady.Iowa.gov – that makes getting ready to vote quick and easy.

HONORING GOD

God has given Americans a great gift in self-government. Not only can we choose our leaders, but we can also shape our nation to Honor God and bless others. So voting is far more than a civic duty – it is an opportunity to minister, to stand for justice, to speak out for those who cannot speak for themselves. Voting is not separate from Christian life, but an outflowing of it, a way to be salt and light, a way to Honor God with the gift He’s given us.
