We believe that people should vote for what they feel is right. That includes everyone. We believe the official government should not restrict people based on religion. Let's say you're atheist, and you think abortion is good (just an example). I don't think a government official, that happens to be Mormon, should try and stop you from voting for pro-abortion laws or pro-abortion representatives. We also don't think that official, if a pro-abortion law is implemented, should ignore that law based on personal convictions. But we believe a private citizen can vote however and for whomever they want. Our religious leaders just advise on what is right and wrong, and they let their members decide for themselves. It's why the LDS Church does not endorse presidential candidates or parties, even Mitt Romney.

I have never seen evidence of Joseph Smith being a Freemason from impartial sources, all from blatantly anti Mormon propaganda.

Blatantly anti-mormon propaganda = anything reported by someone who isnt mormon? If you're going to go the evidence route for determining the validity of the claims made by Joseph Smith you probably wont remain mormon for long. It's one thing to say you feel your religion is right or that you prayed about it and got an answer...no one else can falsify things like that. It's another to try to apply evidence.
