We the People’s Forum: What Do Everyday Americans Think of 2022 Elections?

Braver Angels

Location: Online

It’s almost two years since one of the most controversial elections in American history, with the highest voter turnout in a very long time. In many states, re-evaluation of voting processes are on-going, after questions about ballot access or possible fraud.

As we come up to the next general election, we want to hear what ordinary, working Americans are thinking and feeling about the 2022 elections.

Do you intend to vote? Why? Is it a particular issue or candidate that motivates you? Will you be voting “for” or “against”? Do you have any hopes or fears regarding the outcome of Congressional elections?

Our first speakers include a conservative-leaning union railroad worker who asked 100 of his fellow blue-collar workers about their top issues, a Democratic-leaning pharmacy technician and union leader, a Trump-supporting Iraq war veteran and union lineman, and a former organic farmer who has typically voted Democratic but today identifies with the “exhausted majority.”

Then, it’s the people’s turn to speak.

We The People’s Forums are an opportunity for the people who make this country function everyday–the important people who are not politicians, or talking heads on screens, or opinion writers in the big newspapers–- to make their voices heard.
