2022 Ballot Analysis

Midterm elections provide voters the opportunity to assess and signal if the current presidential administration, federal elected officials, and local elected leaders are meeting their needs. This November, California voters will have the opportunity to cast their votes and determine the make-up of the Senate and House through the next presidential election in 2024. All eligible California voters will receive an election guide and a mail-in ballot. Vote-by-mail ballots can be filled out and mailed or can be taken to a local dropbox. For voters that prefer to vote in-person, they can drop their completed ballot or complete the ballot in-person at polling stations found in communities across California.

To support philanthropy in the midterm elections, NCG committed to:

  1. Sharing factual, non-partisan information about what is included on the ballot;
  2. Analyzing and lifting up policies that advance racial equity and social justice;
  3. Using data-driven narratives to counter mis- and dis-information intended to suppress voting rights for marginalized communities including Black, Indigenous, and other communities of color; 
  4. Amplifying the voices and priorities of grassroots, power-building movement leaders; and,
  5. Providing members with learning opportunities to identify high-impact investment opportunities
