UCCA Encourages Increased Voter Participation Among Ukrainian Americans

Ukrainian Congress Committee of America | Український Конґресовий Комітет Америки

The Ukrainian Congress Committee of America (UCCA), the largest representation of Americans of Ukrainian descent, looks to increase voter participation by the Ukrainian American community in this year’s mid-term elections.

Voter turnout during midterm elections is historically low – in 2014’s midterm election, voter turnout was the lowest since World War II. After consecutive years of increased Congressional funding for aid to Ukraine, many House and Senate chairmanships are due to change in 2023 following Congressional retirements and a change of Congressional districts following the 2020 census. Only by maximizing the Ukrainian-American presence at the polls will incoming Representatives understand the importance of continued aid to Ukraine.

UCCA President Andriy Futey stated,

“We strongly encourage our Ukrainian American community to exercise their right to vote and make their voice heard. Do not sit back and watch from the sidelines. Make your voice heard by making sure you and your fellow supporters of Ukraine are registered to vote and make use of this right in November.”

UCCA members and all supporters of Ukraine who are eligible to vote are encouraged to visit www.vote.org to find out more about Where, When and How to vote in this year’s elections.
