I’m a little bit confused about what Catholics are obligated to when it comes to voting. Some of what I’ve read seems to indicate that Catholics have a moral duty to vote. I am a recent convert, so shortly after I converted I confessed not having voted in the last presidential election to my priest, but he said it’s not a sin. Is it really not a sin to not vote?
If we are morally obligated to vote, is this in all elections, including small local elections? What about in primary vs. general elections?
Thanks for advice!
