“Why doesn’t the Church tell us how to vote?”
Harold B. Lee once said:
people ask me whom to vote for, I tell them to read Mosiah 29 and
section 134 of the Doctrine and Covenants, to pray about it, and then
they will know whom to vote for in any given election. It is just as
simple as that” (Ye Are the Light of the World 36).
In other words, the
Church and the scriptures will provide correct principles, but the Holy
Ghost will dictate specific practices.
