2022 Update: Due to low voter turnout in the midterm elections, no cities will be awarded for being the Votingest.
The New York State voter turnout was under 50% and no individual city reached 60%. Unfortunately, these are not numbers worth celebrating. We are expanding the challenge to Counties in 2024 and hoping that we can collectively break voter turnout records and honor two counties with the largest percentage of participation. We wish to acknowledge and thank the great work of groups around the country to promote civic engagement. We especially applaud the work of young people – they give us hope for the future! So stay tuned in 2024 for The Votingest County Challenge.
