The 2022 midterm election cycle saw new challenges that took several forms: anti-voter laws, voter suppression activities, mis- and disinformation campaigns, election subversion tactics, new gerrymandered electoral maps, an extended primary season, and a national poll worker shortage. But the League of Women Voters met the moment. Our goal has always been to ensure American voters have the access to cast their votes and direct the future of our democracy.
Thanks to the power of Leagues from the national office, across all 50 states, and local Leagues in more than 700 areas around the country, democracy prevailed in 2022. Election work is never done, and the League will push for voting rights at the federal level while continuing to build upon the successes of 2022 to strengthen democracy for future generations.
Our strategies will continue to include:
— Monitoring and responding to voter intimidation efforts around the country;
— Tracking and defending against attempted restraints on voter access and participation;
— Continuing to push for federal voting rights legislation;
— Identifying legislative trends happening across the country;
— Expanding voter registration services at naturalization ceremonies, at high schools and community colleges, and
on National Voter Registration Day;
— Supporting currently and formerly incarcerated persons in registering to vote;
