Your goal should be to make every local candidate aware that you expect him/her to present themselves before your congregation – and their friends – and ask for their vote. How do you do that? Prepare a letter on church stationery, inviting the candidate to give his card to an usher at the beginning of any Sunday service. Tell them, at the close of the service, they will be invited to introduce themselves and be interviewed by the pastor. Stay in touch with the county registrar and post the invitation as soon as they take out papers as a candidate.
Churches with good video capacity should consider hosting candidate debates. The invitation should make clear that absent candidates will be represented by an empty chair with their name on it. Local media stations may broadcast and rebroadcast these recordings!
Prepare voter guides for distribution. Mail a series of questions that are important to your congregation. Compile the responses and print them.
