Don’t Forget to Vote Today!

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

Citizens across the state of Illinois will be casting their votes in today’s General Election. Pro-family candidates need your vote. Therefore, Values Voters must stand up and be counted. Our voice in this election – and in every election – is critical.  So, if you haven’t already voted in this election cycle, please make sure you get to the polls today!

Research the candidates: IFI’s 2022 nonpartisan Voter Guide provides valuable information about where candidates stand on issues related to sanctity of life, parental rights, school issues, and more.

Call your friends, family members, neighbors and remind them to vote. Take someone to the polls with you.


The so-called “Worker’s Rights” Amendment on the ballot will amend the Illinois Constitution by tremendously increasing the power of government public sector union bosses and increasing property taxes by an average of $2,100 per year.

Please keep this election day in prayer – humbly asking our Heavenly Father’s blessings on those who are currently in leadership and for those who are seeking positions of leadership in the state, local, and national levels (1 Timothy 2:1-4). Pray that victorious candidates would honor and fear God, be men and women of integrity, and that they would love truth and justice.

Pray that Christians across the state would get out and vote wisely. Pray for integrity at the polls so that legitimate votes are not cancelled out by voter fraud. Pray for God’s will in this election, and His mercy on our state and nation.

If you have not already reviewed our election resources page, please take a few minutes to study it before you vote.

As you know the polls are open from 6 AM to 7 PM. In some parts of the state, the ballot may be very lengthy and lines may form quickly, so you may want to arrive at the polls earlier than you usually do.

Finally, I leave you with this quote:

“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” ~Samuel Adams

Thank you for participating in our on-going experiment of self-government!

May God Bless America,
