Article VI of the US Constitution states:

"no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States."

This is taken to mean that there can be no law requiring an elected official to belong (or not belong) to a particular religion, or to profess belief in a god.

Voters may, however, decide whether or not to vote for a candidate, based on that candidate's religious views.
