Lift Every Voice: Democracy, Voting Rights and Electoral Reform (2022)

This resolution reaffirms and updates the 2008 resolution of the same name that was approved by the 218th General Assembly and updated by the 222nd General Assembly (2016).  It states the church’s clear opposition to attempts at voter suppression, expressions of white supremacist and white Christian nationalist ideologies, and efforts at the state level to subvert legal elections.  It recognizes the role of gerrymandering and the corrupting power of money in electoral and governing processes and calls for election finance reform.  It denounces the intimidation of election officials and workers and calls on law enforcement agencies and lawmakers to enforce and strengthen laws to protect them.
