WASHINGTON, Nov. 2 /Standard Newswire/ -- In the 24 hours leading up to the opening of polls on Tuesday, November 7, Faith and Action in the Nation's Capital, a Christian ministry active among Evangelicals, traditional Catholics and religiously conservative Orthodox and Protestants, will mobilize more than 60,000 of its supporters across the country to personally motivate and facilitate others to cast their ballots on Election Day. The group will use video E-mail to demonstrate that voting is a mandate found in the Bible and to warn of the serious consequences of neglecting such an obligation.
Faith and Action founder and president, Rev. Rob Schenck, said about the last-minute campaign, "We will urge our people to get out and vote as well as personally reach out to family, friends, colleagues and fellow church members urging them to do the same. But we won't stop simply at the need to vote. We will ask our folks to offer to accompany others to the polls, give them a ride or watch their kids so they have no excuse not to go. We want our people to do everything they can to multiply their vote exponentially."
Rev. Schenck is available for comment beginning Monday, November 6 at 9:00 AM.
