Catholic Resources on Voting Issues

We have compiled a list of resources for the Catholic voter to be educated on the issues this election season, and to be able to make voting decisions calmly and rationally, with an informed conscience. It is important that you vote this election season. Don’t be guided by emotion, but study the party platforms carefully, and prayerfully compare them to the teachings of Christ and His Church.
