2022 Mid-Term Election; Candidate Research

October 20, 2022

The 2022 mid-term elections are November 8th, but many people have already received their ballots in the mail. We have published our voter's guide a few weeks early to give mail-in voters a head start.

Many plural families have expressed conservative views on individual rights, smaller government and family values. These views often align politically with Republican or Libertarian party candidates on many issues. However, if a candidate is negative toward plural families, we recommend voters abstain or vote against the negative candidate.

With estimates placing the number of plural families and their affiliates between 30,000 and 60,000 in the Intermountain West, this voting block has at times swayed the outcome in some close races. We hope candidates recognize the rights of law abiding plural families to peacefully coexist as full citizens and this population's ability to impact elections in the districts which they reside.

As always, we recommend each person exercise their individual right to vote their conscience.

We've been doing research, speaking with candidates on the phone, via email and in person. Below are our recommendations for this election cycle:
