ELECTION DAY 2018
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 6
As Catholics and citizens, members of the Knights of Columbus should vote and should encourage members of their families, parishes, and communities to vote. Yet many people, especially some senior citizens and people with disabilities, have trouble getting to the polls on voting day. To help fellow community members to get to the polls to exercise their right to vote, the Knights of Columbus has developed the parish-based Knights of Columbus Nonpartisan National Get Out the Vote Program.

Members are not authorized to engage in political activity in the name of the Knights of Columbus. Political activity is defined as action directed toward success or failure of a political party, candidate for political office, political group, ballot initiative, proposition and the like. You can not tell or suggest to vote for or not vote for a particular candidate. This is up to the individual to make that decision.
Remember the Third Degree: partisan politics are not allowed in the Order or in any of its council chambers!
