I'm joined today by Ned Ryun, the director of Generation Joshua, HSLDA's program for homeschoolers aged 1419. Ned, welcome to the program.
Ned, one of the projects Generation Joshua has been focusing on is church voter registration drives in preparation for the general election in November. Why are evangelical Christians so important in this upcoming election and how are you getting students involved in the project?
Mike, the reason evangelical Christians are so important in this election is because of the great moral issues of our day. The life issue, the same-sex marriage issue, the issue of activist judgesand because of that, we need evangelicals to vote this fall and vote biblical principles. And, to further this aim, we have Generation Joshua students doing church-based voter registration drives, which are perfectly legal; 501C3s can do them if they're nonpartisan voter drives. So we're encouraging our young people to get into as many churches as possible to register as many evangelical Christians as possible so they can vote on November 2nd.
Ned, this is a vital area for homeschoolers to be involved with. Tomorrow, we're going to discuss other ways that you can help. I'm Mike Farris.
