As Catholics, members of the Knights of Columbus should vote and should encourage other members of their families, parishes, and communities to vote.

As Catholics, members of the Knights of Columbus should vote and should encourage other members of their families, parishes, and communities to vote. Yet many people, especially some senior citizens and people with disabilities, have trouble getting to the polls on voting day. To help fellow Catholics get to the polls to exercise their right to vote, the Knights of Columbus has developed the parish-based Knights of Columbus Nonpartisan National Get Out The Vote Program.

Members are not authorized to engage in partisan political activity in the name of the Knights of Columbus. Partisan Political Activity is defined as activity directed toward success or failure of a: political party, candidate for partisan political office, partisan political group, ballot initiative, proposition, and the like. Remember the Third Degree: partisan politics are not allowed in the Order or in any of its council chambers!

The key first step in helping fellow Catholics get to the polls and exercise their right to vote is to ensure that all eligible voters are registered to vote.

The Knights of Columbus has developed the parish-based Nonpartisan National Voter Registration Program, which provides valuable information councils/assemblies need to help Catholic citizens register to vote within their communities prior to Election Day. Program support materials may be found here.
