Do the Amish Participate in politics?
The answer is no with a little extra. The Amish do not vote in any politics at the National, State, County, or City level. Now they do vote on things in their Amish communities. The politics within their community are much different than the English’s negative spin. If you were Amish, during the time something is being voted on there is no TV, Radio, or Newspaper Ads. Wouldn’t that be nice? They talk about the issues at hand and I have not ever heard of them going negative. They bring the issue up, discuss the issue, and vote on the issue. Most issues are decided by the Elders of the communities. The majority of the issues are voted that way.
Here’s a surprise for you. The Amish will not tell you, but I have noticed over the years that they are very interested to hear about our politics. On numerous occasions with a variety of Amish people, I have discussed some of our current political situations that were going on at the local or state level. I was quite surprised how much the Amish person knew about the issues. I feel they like to keep up with current events whether it’s about the Amish or English politics.
