“I may have exaggerated about how my date went last night. Apparently, Noelle had a different story.”

A Guide to the 2022 Midterm Elections

It’s November 3rd, meaning that we’re less than a week from the 2022 Midterm Elections. We decided to create a guide because voting is something we’re very passionate about. We believe that everyone eligible person should get out and vote in the United States, which typically has subpar turnout. 

In fact, in 2018 about 49% of the eligible population voted, which was higher than in 2014, where only 36% voted. We’re proud to say we vote for every office, from local roles all the way up to the president. But why don’t more Americans, especially young ones like us, vote? We plan on answering this question below, as well as providing additional election information.
