Ebenezer Pastor Raphael Warnock Says ‘We Have A Lot At Stake In This Election’ As Sunday Voting Begins In Georgia

October 17, 2014 4:34 PM " It’s what many in Georgia have waited for, Sunday voting. It begins this weekend, on Sunday, October 19, in Fulton County.

Reverend Doctor Raphael Warnock, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, says “Immediately following the 11am service, we are leading a large caravan of our worshippers from worship to voting. We believe that voting is a sacred exercise, that it’s our moral responsibility.” Warnock said he’s encouraging other churches to do the same, “When you think about the history of our community, nothing happens without the African American Church. Just as we led during the Civil Rights Movement, we must lead during this moment.”

Sunday voting begins on October 26, in DeKalb County, the first county to institute it. Early voting in Georgia started on Monday October 13. The election is on November 4th.

Warnock says “too much is at stake for us to rest on our laurels.” The race for Georgia Governor and a U.S. Senate seat are to be decided. According to Warnock, “We will determine in this midterm election what the next two years are like. Will we have a Senate that works with the President or against the President "
