    Religious obligation to vote?

    The former leader of my denomination (they do not serve for life) preached a sermon in which he declared it a Christian duty to vote. He said many in the church had stayed home on election day, during recent votes (I assume the last two-four presidential elections). "Shame on you!" he said. "If you don't know who to vote for, or don't like any of the candidates, then you get down on your knees, at your prayer altar, and you seek the direction of the Holy Spirit. Then you vote the way he tells you to!" Without going into why, this year was one in which I saw myself possibly deciding on "none of the above." Yet, when I heard these words I felt convicted. My elder is right. Thoughts on this? Is abstention a legitimate way of voting frustration, or is it an easy-out--a cave to cynicism? PLEASE NO NAMING OF POTENTIAL CANDIDATES ON THIS STRING. THAT IS AN ABSOLUTE NO-NO.
