Several pro-family groups will be providing election coverage and analysis on their Web sites or radio programs.

Focus on the Family's CitizenLink has partnered up with American Family Radio to present live coverage of the election. AFR will be present live broadcast coverage available for listening on CitizenLink Election News web page, which will give online updates of the election.

The live broadcast will begin at 7 p.m. EST on Nov. 2. During the broadcast, AFR’s Web site (www.afr.net) will redirect to CitizenLink Election News (election.citizenlink.org). AgapePress will also display links to the broadcast and CitizenLink Election News.

Concerned Women for America (CWA) will also be providing 24-hour election coverage on its Web site (www.cwfa.org). The organization’s policy experts including director of CWA's chief counsel Jan LaRue, CWA's Culture & Family Institute director Robert Knight, and CWA's senior policy director Wendy Wright will be posting their commentaries on important election issues on the Web site.

LaRue said the elections will determine the future make-up of the Supreme Court.

"I don't think the importance of this election can be overstated," she said. "In addition to national security, the next president will likely make three or more appointments to the Supreme Court. They will be either judges who are committed to interpreting the Constitution or re-writing it.”

Knight said, “The American family has a lot at stake in this election,” noting that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), a law which bans same-sex marriage and prohibit states from recognizing same-sex marriages sanctioned in other states, is vulnerable to challenge at state and federal levels.

"Because states fear that the trend toward judicial tyranny will jeopardize their DOMAs, 11 states have amendments on the ballot defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman."

CWA’s policy experts will also address other issues such as the Senate race and stem cell research.
