Dear Friends of Life,    Here are the facts on how California can make a difference in the Republican primary.

1. It is a closed primary.  ONLY registered California Republicans can vote in the presidential Republican primary on June 7, 2016.  If you are a decline to state or other party, you must reregister Repubican by May 23, 2016 in order to be able to vote.

2. It is a winner take all by COUNTY!   Whichever Republican wins the most votes in your county, will get all the delegates from that county.  This means with your help your candidate can take your county!

3. Encourage everyone to be sure they are resgistered to vote.  See non-partisan bulletin inserts for churches as attachments.   A register to
vote form must be received at the Registrar's office by Monday, May 23, 2016.  There are four Sundays in April and three Sundays in May to register in your church.

SOCIAL ISSUES AND PARTY PLATFORMS

The Democratic platform states: ³The Democratic Party strongly and unequivocally supports Roe v. Wade and a woman¹s right to make decisions regarding her pregnancy, including a safe and legal abortion, regardless of
ability to pay. We oppose any and all efforts to weaken or undermine that right.²  The Republican platform states: ³We assert the sanctity of human life and affirm that the unborn child has a fundamental individual right to life which cannot be infringed. We oppose using public revenues to promote or perform abortions or fund organizations which perform or advocate it and will not fund or subsidize health care which includes abortion coverage.²

Democrat platform states: ³We support marriage equality and support the movement to secure equal treatment under law for same-sex couples.²

The Republican platform states: ³Congressional Republicans took the lead in enacting the Defense of Marriage Act, affirming the right of States and the federal government not to recognize same-sex relationships licensed in other jurisdictions. We reaffirm our support for a constitutional amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman.²

REGISTERING IN YOUR CHURCH

Here is the information needed to register voters in your church.  It is a totally legal activity for a tax exempt organization to have a non-partisan voter registration.  There are four Sundays in April and three in May to register as a  register to vote form must be received at the Registrar's office by Monday, May 23. If possible have the registration tables for several Sundays.  Please take this to your pastor, offer to help with the effort and ask him to:

€ Make copies of the bulletin insert ³YOUR VOTE COUNTS² for each church bulletin. See attachments.

€ Ask your pastor to mention from the pulpit that there will be voter registration available.

€ Set up a table with a sign and a flag that Sunday in an area that most people come by.  Make sure someone is at the table between all the services.

€ Obtain from your local library, post office, Registrar¹s office or Crusade for Life (714-963-4753) blank register to vote forms.

€ MOST IMPORTANT:  Tape to the table a comparison of the party platforms.
Encourage people to read this before deciding.

€ Have the forms filled out at the table and have the person in charge collect the forms. When someone  takes them home, they often forget to fill them out.

€ Offer to take the responsibility of mailing in the person¹s form.  Legally they must be mailed in within three days.  Read the back of the forms carefully and fill out the bottom section.

REMEMBER: The persons distributing registration cards are advised that state law imposes PENALTIES OF IMPRISONMENT  for anyone who knowingly and willfully completes affidavits of registration for NON-CITIZENS, NON-EXISTENT OR FICTITIOUS PERSONS, OR ANY INELIGIBLE ELECTOR; defaces or changes the cards in anyway;  or fills out the cards other than the registrant or person assisting the registrant.

Thank you for helping. This is an important aspect of being a Christian and an American.  Matthew 5:13 & 14 ³You are the salt of the earth. ... You are the light of the world. ...²
