Starting this Saturday, Souls to the Polls events will rally believers of every faith to vote in the midterm election every weekend through November 7th. In Central Florida, events are already scheduled to take place in Orange and Brevard counties.
Executive Director Rev. Rhonda Thomas says the goal is to get as many people registered and voting this election as possible, especially as misinformation about the election process continues to spread. “We’re not just encouraging, we’re praying that it will be a successful voter turnout. We’re sharing the history of why voting is so important and how it even lines up with our own faith. And since Faith in Florida is a multiracial, multi-faith, it’s not just coming from the Christian faith, it’s coming from our Muslim faith as well as our Jewish community.”
