The 2020 winner for larger cities in NY State was Albany, NY with 75% eligible voter participation in the 2020 presidential election and Saratoga Springs won in the smaller cities category with 80% voter turnout. Congrats to the 2020 winners!
The Votingest City Challenge is a joyous competition celebrating cities with the highest percentage of eligible voter participation. The prize is a trophy honoring those who have fought for voting rights – Dr. Martin Luther King, Rep. John C. Lewis, Mary Church Terrell, Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, Ella Baker, Fannie Lou Hamer and Bob Moses.
The Votingest City Challenge is a unique opportunity to increase voter participation in the 2022 mid-term election, have some fun, and participate in a light-hearted, joyful competition among New York state cities to see which cities have the highest percentage of eligible voters vote and which cities have made the biggest improvement since the 2020 Presidential election.
