What is an Election Day Sermon? It is a sermon that was common in early America. The day that the newly Elected were sworn into Office, Ministers would deliver messages called Election Day Sermons. For those sermons, all the elected officials were invited to attend and the pastor would direct his message to both the Elected and the Electorate.

The purpose of the Election Day Sermon was not to tell people who to vote for, but rather to proclaim from the pages of scripture what a nation must do to in order to experience the blessing of God. Both Voters and Rulers were charged to promote virtue and suppress vice.

In a time when there was no internet, let alone TV or radio, many of those sermons were printed and distributed far and wide in the form of pamphlets.  History reveals that God used the Election Day Sermons to make a positive influence upon the entire nation. When America became more sophisticated, the Election Day Sermon went out of fashion.

Bonner County has experienced two such Election Day Sermons; one in 2009 and the other in 2013.
