Bishops Active at State and National Level in Current Election Cycle

With Election Day less than a week away, Catholic voters in several states will be considering many ballot measures in addition to hotly contested races for various state and federal offices.
The individual state Catholic conferences, the public-policy arms of the states’ bishops, have surveyed candidates, compiled “informed citizenship” guides for Catholic voters and staked out positions on a host of ballot questions pertaining to matters of life, religious freedom, marriage and human dignity.
Throughout the year, the committee chairmen of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) have also prepared statements and spoken out on several political issues that are impacting individual congressional races, such as immigration, marriage, national security and health-care reform.
