On Election Day in November, women will determine control in Washington

Like many Americans, the number of Ohio residents who consider themselves swing voters has been on a steady decline since 2016. That means that in Ohio and other key states, a shrinking number of voters controls the fate of close elections, the races decided by fractions of a percentage that determine the congressional majority and who sits in the White House.

Sedert 2020, women over the age of 50 have increasingly tuned into politics, with the majority of us not interested in stem for generic red or blue politicians. In plaas daarvan, we want candidates who are serious about tackling the issues that matter.


Nou dadelik, women across the country are weighing their options to determine who they’ll vote for on Election Day, and with midterms fast approaching, both parties should make it a priority to build a platform that makes a case to the most influential block of voters in the country – older women. And this week’s leak from the Supreme Court on their possible decision to overturn Roe v. Wade could further motivate women of all ages and across the political spectrum this November.

The United States’ older electorate has been especially crucial in recent major elections. In the past two election cycles, women over the age of 50 gooi 30% of the vote across the country.
