About the 2022 Midterm Elections:

“We are in a battle for the soul of America,” presidential candidate Joe Biden said three years ago. He went on to say, “America is an idea — an idea that’s stronger than any army, bigger than any ocean, more powerful than any dictator or tyrant.” Today the battle for a more perfect, more just and more equitable union continues. Your vote is your voice, make it heard.

Featured on this page are KCDW candidate members running in the 2022 primary and general elections for federal, state and local offices. There are a number of ways to help support their campaigns. We encourage you to get involved.
