AFA Action will be co-hosting a “Pledge to Vote” special edition on the American Family Radio (AFR) program, Today’s Issues. It will air on Thursday, February 18, from 10-11AM CST. 

The “Pledge to Vote” program will help Christians understand the significance of voting from a biblical and civic perspective. Listeners will be informed on how they can identify the candidates’ position on issues through an in-depth, online voter guide. The “Pledge to Vote” program will also describe the function of the primary and caucus elections as well as how the Electoral College process works. 

A “Pledge to Vote” can be watched online via live-streaming video at www.AFAAction.net, or you can listen to it on American Family Radio (AFR) at the same time (Here’s a map of stations). 

The program will be co-hosted by Tim Wildmon, President, AFA; Ed Vitagliano, Executive VP; Walker Wildmon, Assistant to the President; and Rob Chambers, National Field Director, AFA Action. Special commentary will be provided by Franklin Graham (Billy Graham Evangelistic Association) and Todd Starnes (Fox News). You are encouraged to watch online or tune-in. 

There is a great need for Christians to get engaged in the voting process. 50% of Christians are not even registered to vote. Half of those registered to vote, or 25%, don’t even show up on election day. This means 75% of Christians do not take voting serious. 

Primary and caucus elections are where evangelical Christians can make a significant impact by increasing voter turnout by 1-2%, but less than 16% of registered voters vote in primary and caucus elections. Most of these voters are unaware on the candidates’ position on the issues and are not making an informed vote.

The “Pledge to Vote” is a timely program. It is two days prior to the February 20 primary and caucuses in SC, NV, and WA and leading up to March 1 (Super Tuesday/SEC Primary)—when Republican primary rules change. States holding GOP primaries on March 1 but before March 15 will award their delegates on a proportional basis. This means there will be no Republican winner-take-all delegates during this time. States voting on March 15 or later will award their delegates on a winner-take-all basis.

AFA Action is encouraging Christians to get out and vote in the primary and caucus elections by taking the Pledge to Vote and being informed voters with the AFA Action Voter Guide.
