FITE Update 6: Importance of the Christian Vote
BBC New's website has run a quite lengthy article on the possible impact of the Christian vote in the forthcoming general election. The upshot is that in such a closely fought race as the 2010 election, the Christian vote might well have a greater impact than normal, particularly in marginal seats. So if you feel it's been a waste of time in the past, don't let this chance by. Get out there and do some research on your local MPs (there's a very useful little tool to do just that from a Christian perspective here, and a more detailed site across a wider selection of issues here), put prospective candidates through their paces (call and email them, make them work for it by telling you where they stand on issues you consider important), then get out there and canvas for the Christian vote. And don't forget to register to vote yourself.
