The 2022 Midterms Are A Referendum On Abortion Rights And LGBTQ Freedoms. Here’s How To Have Your Say.

The 2022 midterm elections are Nov. 8, and every state but one requires voters to register beforehand. You can either register by mail or in person and, in some states, online. If you’re not already registered to vote, check your state’s deadline to be sure you can vote in the midterm elections.

Midterm elections hold a lot of weight this year. Every seat in the House of Representatives is available, as well as 35 Senate seats and 36 governorships. These elections can have an effect on many wide-ranging issues, like healthcare, abortion rights, LGBTQ rights, climate change, and more, so voting is critical to ensure the future you want to see.
