Hundreds of churches are expected to participate in a Voter Registration Sunday, the first-ever event of its kind this weekend.
The goal is to get Christians across America more engaged in the political process—90 million Christians in America are eligible to vote, but as many as 40 million fail to vote in presidential election cycles. And 15 million are not even registered to vote, according to the My Faith Votes website.
Jason Yates, CEO of My Faith Votes, appeared on Thursday's edition of CBN News' Faith Nation to talk about the event.
Some people say churches should stay out of politics, but Yates says Christians should be involved in the political process.
