California’s 2020 Primary Election is less than a month away, and the California Catholic Conference (CCC) has several resources available to become an informed voter.

The CCC’s Faithful Citizenship website page includes sample bulletin announcements and a Faithful Citizenship FAQ, answering such questions as ‘Who has a right to be engaged in civic discussions?’

As per our tradition, we also published an analysis of Proposition 13 with a non-partisan analysis and suggested principles from Catholic social teaching to help you in your decision-making. Click here to read the analysis.  (It is important to note that this ballot proposition is not related to the wider-known Proposition 13 (1978) that affects the property tax rate of homes.)

In addition, the USCCB has released a series of videos on Faithful Citizenship to inspire prayer and action in political life and to help Catholics apply the Church’s teaching as handed down by Pope Francis.

According to Pope Francis, “We need to participate for the common good. Sometimes we hear: a good Catholic is not interested in politics. This is not true: good Catholics immerse themselves in politics by offering the best of themselves so that the leader can govern." 

The deadline to register to vote in the Primary is February 15. Click here to register.
