NYC Votes will host a Get Out the Vote Text Bank on Saturday, October 29 from 12:00pm – 4:00pm to encourage participation and create awareness of the midterm election on Tuesday, November 8, 2022.
This year, New Yorkers will decide who represents us in Congress and which party will have a majority in the U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. That choice will determine which bills get voted on and which Presidential appointments – like Supreme Court Justices – get approved. We’ll also choose who leads New York State, including the Governor and state legislature. These leaders will make decisions on issues like public safety jobs, and reproductive rights that impact us every day.There are also four proposals on the ballot that will give you the chance to vote directly on issues like climate change and racial justice in NYC.
You can participate in this event safely from home while still having a big impact on your city. We hope that you can join us as we reach out to New Yorkers and prepare them to cast their ballots in this election. You are the key to keeping New York City’s democracy strong!
