Building a Society of Truth and Love
The 2022 Election season is here with early voting already underway in Florida. Before voting, Catholics are called to consider a wide range of issues, weighing each according to its moral importance. Becoming familiar with candidates' positions on issues involving human life and dignity is essential to responsible, faithful citizenship. It is beneficial to research the ballot ahead of time and gather the facts for every proposal and race.
The Florida Conference of Catholic Bishops has created a Voter Guide to assist voters in evaluating candidate positions or political party platforms. The Guide provides information about Catholic teaching, offers considerations on key topics, and poses questions regarding current issues.
