Know Where They Stand
There are 22 days left in the 2021 Virginia elections!
It’s crunch time and that means is critical that everyone spread the word about who the candidates are and what they stand for. This is a call to all pro-life voters to get out there and vote AND encourage others to vote. Elections are the chance for Virginia voters to turn the tide on the radical pro-abortion wave that has hit Virginia over the past several years. There is a major difference between Terry McAuliffe and Glenn Youngkin. Make sure you, your family and friends get educated before you vote.
All three statewide offices (Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General) and all 100 House of Delegate seats are on the ballot this year. The control of each are critical to the direction Virginia will take in the future. This is why it’s important to know where the candidates stand and to work on influencing those around you before they vote.
To see where they stand, go to the VSHL website: vshl.org/2021-virginia-statewide-candidate-comparison.

Interested in Making a Difference?
Calling all callers! We are requesting help from you to reach out to others and encourage them to vote. As you may well know, the 2021 elections are critical for the state of Virginia.
We have many spheres of influence and as citizens we can use our influence for the good, especially in our church communities. Our faith is not to be excluded from politics OR from our choice in civic leaders. It’s part of our responsibility, as church-going citizens, to encourage others to participate in this great freedom to elect our representatives. VSHL is reaching out to you in the hopes that you would be willing to contact your fellow church members and encourage them to vote. Go to vshl.org/church-2021-pro-life-voter-outreach-volunteer-form
We are electing a Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General and the entire House of Delegates. This is our opportunity to bring Virginia back to LIFE! This is the time to support voters in their desire to make a change in leadership, to pick leaders who will actually represent the people and not just claim public office in order to wield political power for personal gain.
