Ballot busters

Our favorite midterm election memes (so far)…

In case you haven’t heard, the 2018 midterm elections are tomorrow. And they’re going to be historic.

Not only is voter enthusiasm higher than ever, with over 30 million early ballots already cast, but young voters are expected to turn out at record-breaking levels. A poll released by Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government found that 40% of 18 to 29-year-olds say they will “definitely vote” in the midterm elections.

Arizona and Tennessee could send women to the U.S. Senate for the first time. And the U.S. House of Representatives could get its first Somali-American and Native American woman.
