Citizenship Vow Ritual
by Hannah Arin and Mary Ann Brussat
In spiritual and community circles, it is common for people to make vows expressing their aspirations, commitments, and intentions.

This voting ritual, designed for group or individual use, sets a strong intention to benefit all those whom your vote will affect: those whose voices are not heard, those you love, the bridge builders, the leaders, and your own many facets. When you lead this ritual with a group, you may want someone to introduce it along the lines of this call to remember that we are never alone.
