New Report On LGBTQ Voters Fast Track

By Charlotte Robinson, October 15, 2022

With the midterm election just weeks away a timely new report show that LGBTQ Americans are projected to become one of the fastest growing voting blocs in the country growing at a scale, scope & speed that will fundamentally reshape the American electoral landscape. The Human Rights Campaign & Bowling Green State University report entitled “Equality Electorate: The Projected Growth of the LGBTQ+ Voting Bloc in Coming Years” offers new analysis of publicly available data projects that by 2030 approximately one-in-seven voters will be LGBTQ representing a sharp increase over the current one-in-ten. Joni Madison, Interim President of the Human Rights Campaign stated, “The LGBTQ+ voting bloc has been steadily growing & is on track to exponentially expand in the coming years, becoming one of the fastest growing voting constituencies in the country, wielding increasing influence in local, state & federal elections. LGBTQ+ voters are already playing a pivotal role in elections & in the coming years will fundamentally reshape the American electoral landscape — especially in battleground states & swing districts that are consequential to determining control of the Presidency & Congress.” The analysis was developed using publicly available data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Household Pulse Survey & demographic projections from the University of Virginia Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service. With the increased acceptance of LGBTQ people & pro-equality policies among Millennials & Generation Z it’s safe to assume that LGBTQ Americans & their pro-equality allies are & will increasingly continue to be an important voting bloc in the future of American elections.
