Impact of abortion rights on Democratic election

After the overturning of Roe v. Wade this year, voter turnout showed that abortion access was high on the list of priorities for voters.

The polls directly reflected that voters supported people’s access to abortion and showed they’re concerned over people losing access. This resulted in people voting more than they ever have in the past.


Following the decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the way the election would play out changed. Before this point, access to abortion was not an issue. Once that changed, people who felt strongly about rights to the medical procedure made sure their vote would count. If a specific right comes under fire, voters will do what they can to protect their rights by voting.

The momentum will likely remain through the 2024 election when it’s time to vote for president, especially if between now and then states continue to try to restrict access to abortion.
