(KSL News) The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is encouraging members to vote.

The church recently released a statement reading in part that "as citizens, we have the privilege and duty of electing office-holders and influencing public policy. Participation in the political process affects our communities and nation today and in the future."

The LDS Church has long-held a policy of political neutrality and continues that tradition in this statement saying, "Principles compatible with the gospel may be found in various political parties."
