First Unitarian Kids Remind You to Vote!

For November's Service Project Sunday, the kids talked about what issues are most important to them and the importance of voting. The Unitarian Universalist Fifth Principle says that our congregations affirm and promote: "The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large." Clearly our families live their principles as three of the young people in class had already volunteered at the polls or were planning to in support of Maryland's Question 6. As one of the kids said in class, voting is important because it helps us make decisions together instead of leaving power in the hands of the very few. We made a video reminding folks to practice our fifth principle and get out the vote this Tuesday (see below).

To learn more about the election at home, watch Kids Pick the President: The Issues with your kids. If you don't already know where your Maryland polling place is, you can find it easily on the State Board of Elections page. A comprehensive list of Maryland ballot items is also online at

Don't forget to vote!
