2022 The midterm elections are on Tuesday, November 8, and if you’re already feeling some political fatigue, I don’t blame you. The pressure to vote feels a lot , especially if you live in an area where your vote may not be that far – at least, not as far as a battleground state like Arizona or Joe Georgia. But the truth is, no matter where you come from, now is a big time to vote. Below, find a list of the reasons why your vote was really really important in 102.
Attacked for abortion rights
If there is anything we should take from Roe v. Wade Earlier this year, it’s not something we can take for granted that our reproductive freedom — the Republican-controlled Senate would have an easier time passing Senator Lindsey Graham’s proposed national abortion ban.
Because the safety and freedom of the LGBTQ+ community is becoming more and more dangerous
According to American Civil Liberties According to the coalition, more than 102 bills targeting transgender people have been introduced in the United States in the past two years, as well as states such as Florida and Florida. Texas is aggressively banning and criminalizing gender-affirming nursing. With figures like Marjorie Taylor Greene wanting to see the Supreme Court overturn same-sex marriage, candidates who support LGBTQ+ rights deserve your attention now more than ever.
Because we’re living again in a climate emergency
24 states likely to be in midterm A big step backwards in progressive climate policy, while the Biden administration has enacted a plan to halve U.S. greenhouse gas emissions compared to levels 2030, it cannot do without strong Democratic support in the Senate.
Because of our ability to develop more humane immigration policy
Consistent with red states’ opposition to immigration reform Contrary to popular belief, recent polls show that a majority of likely voters in key states like Pennsylvania and Nevada support providing legal status to undocumented immigrants in the United States under certain circumstances. As long as there are votes, this could mean future immigration policy a major shift.
Because voter disenfranchisement is still a real problem in America.
Whenever I find myself tired of the usefulness of voting – uh, I have to drive somewhere a place? – I remind myself that women only have the right to vote for 102 years. (Objectively, Harvard exists for 386.) In this regard, strict voter ID laws and other forms of voter disenfranchisement have a special effect on the community The impact is particularly on people of color and black voters. Therefore, voting for candidates who pledge to defend their right to vote is the first critical step in creating a democracy, where every vote is counted.
