What does the Mormon church do about politics?

A lot of people are curious about the Mormon church’s approach to politics. In some churches, a political party or candidate may be endorsed from the pulpit; in the Mormon church, members are simply encouraged to seek and find good honest men and women to vote for and support. The Mormon church does not endorse any political party or candidate.

From LDS.org:

The Church’s mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, not to elect politicians. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is neutral in matters of party politics. This applies in all of the many nations in which it is established.

Many Mormons are very politically active. There are even Mormons serving in the Senate and other major political offices around the US. They are Republicans, Democrats, Independants, etc. We are encouraged to be active participants in our communities, and to reach out and help our neighbors wherever we may be.

If you have any more questions about Mormons in politics, please feel free to ask. Thank you.
