Top 10 Ways to Help Voters in the 2022 Primary
Not only are they an important way to choose who ends up on your ballot in November, but they also set voters up for a successful General Election in other ways. Voters who vote in the Primary Election are more likely to show up again for the General. Identifying problems at the polls in the Primary makes us ready to address them before the General. Winning strong Early Voting plans for the Primary sets a precedent for more Early Voting options in the General.
