Why Vote?

Does my vote matter? Does my vote really count?

CARE maintains that as Christians, involvement throughout society is part of our God-given mission. Here are some reasons why it is important for us to vote:

  • The Bible is clear about the Christian value of respecting governments.
  • Taking part in our democratic system is a way of affirming the human dignity of all people.
  • Voting demonstrates that we recognise our duty to be involved in society.
  • By voting, we can influence the make-up of the leadership of our nation.
  • Our choices are an opportunity to reflect God’s agenda for society.
  • Opinion polls show how close this election is going to be, which means each and every vote really does matter, wherever we live.
