Here is a sample bulletin insert for people to adapt in reaching out to their own houses of worship.  In addition to reaching out to your faith community, please share with lay people in other faith communities who might want to pursue.  Also remember the community ministries you support-- think of what support they need.   Please use or don't use this 'PSA' however you like.  

For Sunday 9/28 and Oct 5

Jesus said, “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s.” You can interpret that saying in a variety of ways, but clearly Jesus realized that people have certain basic obligations as citizens living in any society. In a democratic society like the U.S., one of those obligations and certainly one of those gifts of liberty is to vote.   

 
[You could include action below or another idea, or not]

[name of church] will not tell you how to vote, but we will tell you that it is a part of your civic and church obligation to register to vote and then to vote early or on Election Day. We invite you to sign the “I VOTE” card in the [name place/fellowship hall] with a green pen if you have registered to vote and know your polling location, and with a red pen when you have voted. If you need voter registration forms or need to change your address or look up polling and early voting locations, come to the table.  You may also sign up to volunteer to help our congregation and community vote or contact __________. If you are too young to vote, please sign the card with a purple pen indicating that you plan to do so when you are of age!
