Living in a democracy is a precious gift, and as Christians we understand ourselves to be stewards of the gifts God has given us. With the right to participate in the political process comes the responsibility to exercise that gift on behalf of the common good.

As we approach the elections of 2018 we again have the opportunity to help shape the public discussion about the goals and values we want expressed in our national, state, and local government.   The following statewide elections will be held this year:

  • Spring Primary: February 20
  • Spring Election and Presidential Preference Primary: April 3
  • Partisan Primary: August 14
  • General Election: November 6

The Wisconsin Council of Churches offers the following resources to assist you and other members of your congregation in exercising your rights and responsibilities as voters.
