AGJ x I AM A VOTER.
In anticipation of the 2022 Midterm Elections, we're excited to partner again with I AM A VOTER.
Because our democracy works best when everyone can vote.
With the midterm elections quickly approaching, we've once again joined forces with our friends at I AM A VOTER. to help support their mission to register every eligible voter—and just in time for National Voter Registration Day this September 20th.
Why is voter registration so important?
Every year, millions of eligible voters are unable to cast a ballot because of a missed registration deadline, outdated registration information, or other problems with their voter registration.

The outcome of this year’s midterms can shift control of Congress. The people you elect will also directly influence what the President can get done.
So what's at stake?
On the ballot in 2022: 35 of 100 seats in the Senate, all 435 seats in the House of Representatives, governor seats in 36 states, legislators in 88 of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers, and a wide range of local & special elections.
Why does your vote matter?
