Press Release / Last Updated:

WASHINGTON — The League of Women Voters reached more than 27 million voters in the 2022 midterm election cycle, resulting in the organization’s largest ever voter engagement program in a federal election cycle.

LWV released its 2022 Election Impact report today highlighting the organization's impact in the 2022 midterm elections.  

The League of Women Voters, founded in 1920 with more than 750 state and local chapters across the country, registered voters, trained volunteers, served as poll workers, and organized candidate debate forums in record numbers in 2022. 

“Democracy was on the ballot last fall, and as a League, we stepped up our efforts to ensure all voters had the equal opportunity to make their voices heard,” said Virginia Kase Solomón, CEO of the League of Women Voters of the US. “Our priority will always be the American voter and ensuring that elections remain fair and accessible.” 

Last fall, voters faced an array of new voting challenges — from anti-voter laws and disinformation campaigns to a nationwide poll worker shortage. New district maps from the 2020 Census also impacted voters in every state. 

In addition to reaching more than 27 million voters with election information, the League also protected more than 17 million voters through litigation and featured over 52,000 candidates through its nonpartisan election information website

Through VOTE411, the League helped people register to vote, confirm their registration information, find their polling place and/or drop box locations, learn about early and absentee voting options, and learn how to make a voting plan. 

The League of Women Voters envisions a democracy where every person has the desire, the right, the knowledge, and the confidence to participate.
