Election Advice from John Wesley

You can’t go wrong with this advice! From Wesley’s journal, October 3, 1774.

I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them:
1) To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy.
2) To speak no evil of the person they voted against.
3) To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.
