What's on Your Midterm Ballot?
The midterm elections are just around the corner. On Tuesday, November 8th, all across the country will vote for our representatives in Congress and in our state government. On the ballot, we have 435 House seats, 35 Senate seats, 27 secretary of state seats, and many more positions to vote for. We know that midterms can be hard to piece through. There’s so much information. Down ballot races don’t get a lot of airtime, and many states have important ballot initiatives to consider. The ACLU is a nonpartisan organization, so we don’t tell voters who to vote for, but we do inform voters about what’s at stake in an election. So here is what’s at stake. Abortion access is on the ballot, and so are LGBTQ rights, voting rights, immigrant rights, and criminal, legal and criminal legal reform. To help break it all down. We have a special episode today that will arm you with all that you need to know in order to vote your values at the polls.
Joining as our resident guide is Kary Moss, the ACLU’s Acting National Political Director and the Director of Affiliate Support and Nationwide Initiatives.
