Aloha my PCC Ohana. 

I hope we are all engaged in the process of voting for the county, state, and federal officials who will shape our quality of life for the foreseeable future. The First Presidency issued the following letter on October 6, 2020, to church members in the United State in advance of the upcoming elections on November 3, 2020. 

Citizens of the United States have the privilege and duty of electing office holders and influencing public policy. Participation in the political process affects their communities and nation today and in the future. We urge Latter-day Saints to be active citizens by registering, exercising their right to vote, and engaging in civic affairs. 

We also urge you to spend the time needed to become informed about the issues and candidates you will be considering. Along with the options available to you through the Internet, debates, and other sources, the Church occasionally posts information about particular moral issues on which it has taken a position at www.Newsroom.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. 

Principles compatible with the gospel may be found in various political parties, and members should seek candidates who best embody those principles. 

While the Church affirms its institutional neutrality regarding political parties and candidates, individual members should participate in the political process. Please strive to live the gospel in your own life by demonstrating Christlike love and civility in political discourse.

Sincerely yours, 

Russell M. Nelson
Dallin H. Oaks
Henry B. Eyring
