Tens of millions of voters were spurred into action yesterday and in the days leading up to the election through the work of Liberty Counsel, Liberty Counsel Action, and Liberty Action PAC. Before one vote was cast yesterday, Liberty Counsel was on the front lines messaging voters.
Working with United in Purpose, Liberty Counsel was able to reach nearly 10 million voters through the iPledge and iStand teleconferences. With these get-out-the-vote emails and others, Liberty Action PAC sent over 9 million emails to self-identified Christians and conservative Americans focusing on voter turnout. “The email campaign has been massive,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “It would be difficult to overstate the impact of this massive effort.”
Liberty Counsel Action placed telephone calls to over 144,000 of our constituency in the weekend leading up to the election to get out the vote, including many to conservative Hispanic Americans who voted in 2012. In the final get-out-the-vote message, Liberty Counsel reached 400,000 members just on Election Day. In recent elections, over 90% of Liberty Counsel members voted, even in midyear campaigns.
Through Liberty Counsel’s Pastors and Patriots initiative, Mat Staver and a team of pastors and evangelical leaders traveled across the country conducting meetings with pastors and Who Will Stand? rallies at churches, encouraging political activism. Liberty Counsel sent tens of thousands of Silence is Not an Option DVDs to pastors and church leaders, explaining their rights and responsibilities in using the pulpit to promote Biblical public policy. In addition to all of this, Liberty Counsel distributed a “Congressional Scorecard” and “Pray and Vote” information.
“I am pleased to report that Liberty Counsel Ministries played a major role in turning out Christian and conservative voters,” said Mat Staver. “Liberty Counsel will continue these efforts into 2015 and beyond to ensure that Christians are standing up and being heard, so our children and grandchildren can live out their faith free of government intrusion.”
Liberty Counsel is an international nonprofit, litigation, education, and policy organization dedicated to advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family since 1989, by providing pro bono assistance and representation on these and related topics.
