GOP Takes Voter Registration to the Pump


Republicans are launching a nationwide voter registration effort at gas stations in hopes of taking back Congress in the upcoming 2022 midterm election. 

Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel announced the effort Sunday after an experiment over the weekend in Arizona, Just the News reports

“Don’t like the #BidenGasHike? Vote! Republicans are coming to gas stations nationwide to register voters!” McDaniel tweeted. 

The RNC held three voter-registration drives near gas stations in Phoenix on Saturday. 

“Arizonans are frustrated with paying the record-high gas prices we’ve seen recently, this is an issue that affects almost every single Arizonan,” Ben Peterson, RNC’s Arizona spokesperson, said. “There’s no doubt that everyone is feeling the pain at the pump, so a gas station right now may be the very best possible place for one of our volunteers to have a conversation with someone and get someone signed up to vote.”
