Election 2022: Overview
Women Running for Office

Election Day 2022 (the midterm elections) is Tuesday, November 8. Rochester residents will see many women on their ballots that day (or before). Rochester Women Magazine posed the same three questions to female candidates. You can see the questions below and click on the each office name to see the candidates in the running for those seats.
