Mercy for Justice

All Things Election 2024

Participate in Democracy

In our first U. S. presidential election year since the insurrection on January 6, 2021, it is prudent to ask questions about the safety of our democracy and the steps citizens can take to protect. In this space we are curating resources for education and action in 2024.

Tools for Voters

The Equally Sacred Checklist from NETWORK addresses the question: “How can we know we are voting for candidates who promote the common good?”


  • Voting and Democracy, from NETWORK, includes a series of blog posts about elections and politics.
  • Vote411, from League of Women Voters, provides information and resources for participating in local and national elections.
  • Ensure Every American Can Vote, from the Brennan Center for Justice, explores voting rights issues.

Student Videos

Each year, students at Mercy sponsored schools are invited to enter a Social Justice Video Contest and put their creative ideas and skills to work by sharing stories of the Sisters of Mercy’s Critical Concerns. In 2024, some of the videos focused on voting. Here are three videos that took home honors for this year’s contest.
