Separation of church and state: it’s a fundamental division dating back to the founding of the American democracy. But when it comes to the relationship between an individual’s religious beliefs and his/her vote, how a person arrives at a decision is as complicated as they come.

On Monday, October 15th, KPCC’s South L.A. Reporter José Martinez dove into the ways our religious views shape choices in the voting booth. Rather than responding to a panel of experts, this group discussion looked to attendees to speak about challenges, concerns, and nuances around the complex and personal connection between faith and the vote.
