ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the role of Catholics during elections. He laments the growing tendency of citizens to refrain from exercising their right to vote, and would rather stay home during elections. He refers to the points presented by Archbishop McNichols on the responsibilities of Catholics, including making a habit of voting and the practice of religious toleration in deciding on who to vote for. He encourages Catholics and citizens to uphold democracy by uniting at the polls, to prevent against radical elements from controlling freedom and the law.
