In a victory for democracy, Americans turned out in record numbers for the 2022 midterm elections, despite unprecedented efforts at voter suppression and disinformation campaigns. Candidates who ran on anti-democratic platforms, authoritarian, and populist agendas largely lost their races, with, unfortunately, notable exceptions.

We are relieved there have been no reports of widespread violence, voter intimidation, or election subversion. However, as we await the overall results, we must remain vigilant and ensure that every vote is counted—no matter how long it takes.

For over 78 years, the Jewish Council for Public Affairs (JCPA) has worked to ensure that voting is free, fair, and accessible. We believe that our nation can only live up to its democratic ideals when all are confident that they can vote freely and without undue hardship

These core democratic ideals must be fiercely protected by all of us, regardless of political persuasion. JCPA will continue to advocate so that all eligible Americans are able to participate meaningfully in the electoral process and have their votes counted.
