2022 Stonewall Voter Guide

Endorsed Candidates

November 8, 2022

In this virtual environment, it’s harder than ever to let voters know about good candidates - candidates who support LGBTQ+ and women’s rights and values

The 2022 midterms are critical to defending democracy. Help us spread the word about the candidates that you’ve voted to support! We’ll advertise them via social media, slate mailers, and more - the more money we have, the more voters we can reach!
