2016 Political Election Information and Reminders
In preparation for the national election day, please remember that there are resources available through the Ohio Catholic Conference as well as through the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (both pages will be updated during the course of the election season.
There are also a variety of excellent resources available for parishes and schools on the USCCB Faithful Citizenship website and on the election information page of the website for the Ohio Catholic Conference.
It is the policy of the Diocese of Toledo that the only election materials to be shared through the parishes and diocesan institutions are those that come directly from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the Ohio Catholic Conference or our own diocesan Chancery. Information left in our buildings or on windshields that is not from the abovementioned sources is not endorsed by the Diocese of Toledo, its parishes or institutions.
It should also be noted that in the Diocese of Toledo we do not make available the use of church facilities or assets for partisan political purposes. This includes the rental of church facilities as well as posting partisan political signage on parish/school/institution property. It is not permissible to display any banners, placards, signs, flyers, etc. depicting any candidate on church grounds or in church/school offices or buildings.
