The Role of Women's Votes in Democracy

  • HVC-200, Capitol Visitor Center (map)

Wednesday, March 27th at 2:00pm

HVC-200

Dear Colleague:

In honor of Women’s History Month, we invite you and your staff to attend a briefing on the role of women’s votes in the democracy.

In the 2018 elections, women played a bigger role than they have in any other election in American history. Over two hundred and fifty-five women ran for House and Senate seats across the United States. And a record one hundred and seventeen women won elections, including forty women of color.

This election also saw the largest partisan gender gap we have seen in almost a decade. A YouGov survey found that female voters preferred the Democratic candidate by 15 points, while male voters preferred the Republican candidate by 9 percentage points.

In this briefing our panelists will explore the role and impact of women’s votes in the 2018 election and the ways in which their vote will influence the upcoming 2020 election.

Panelists for the March 27th briefing include the following experts:

  • Page Gardner- Founder and President of the Voter Participation Center

  • Minyon Moore- Principal of Dewey Square Group’s State and Local Affairs and Multicultural Strategies

  • Alexis Anderson-Reed- Executive Director of State Voices

If you are interested in joining or have any questions about the event, please contact Sophia Khan in Congressman Beyer’s office at sophia.khan@mail.house.gov.

Sincerely,

Don Beyer
