#MomTheVote is a social media campaign to inspire and energize every mom in the U.S. to use the power of her vote to make a difference in her life, her family’s life, her community, and the world her children will grow up in.
Every mom wants the best for herself and for her family
Throughout this election season, the What to Expect Project will use the hashtag #MomTheVote to inspire and energize every mom to use the power of her voice to make a difference. We’ll break down issues and policies that impact the health, safety, security and economic wellbeing of you and your kids — now, and in the future — including health care, child care and paid family leave.
MOTHERHOOD IS THE ULTIMATE SISTERHOOD
#MomTheVote is about encouraging our fellow moms to vote
not telling them who to vote for (or against)
How do we help make this goal a reality?
To empower you to speak up on issues and vote for candidates who vote for you and your family.
To focus on positive change instead of negative partisanship.
Make voting as easy and accessible as possible.
To clear up confusion and sort out facts.
Knowledge is power. Voting is power. Having the knowledge to make informed voting decisions is more powerful still.
Heidi Murkoff, Founder
Hope through action. Hope through advocacy. Hope through the vote.
Throughout this election season and beyond, join us in using the hashtag #MomTheVote to spread the word about the importance of voting — because the power of your vote can make your life happier, healthier, less stressful and more secure.
“VOTE!!!!!!!!” —a one-word PSA brought to you by Rosie, who wears the new hicolugo VOTE kerchief (ok, it’s a drool bib) benefiting blackvotersmtr.
This is a particularly significant election for me (lol) — not just for all the obvious reasons, but also because it’s the first election where I’ll be voting as a mother. It’s the first election where I’ll voting with someone else’s interests, with someone else’s future, truly at heart.
My daughter can’t vote yet — so I’m voting on her behalf.
I’m voting to protect families. I’m voting for gender equality and reproductive rights. I’m voting for racial equality and LGBTQ+ rights. For health care, for *maternal* health care. For gun safety and environmental protection. For immigration and education. For ethics. For decency. For the future. For HER future.
I’ve got my ballot and my voting plan all set. Today is a *great* day to make sure you’re ready. If you need any help, feel free to DM me — I’m no expert but I’m happy to help you find the resources you need, wherever you are.

“Like I always say, motherhood is the ultimate sisterhood. No matter where you live, no matter what your beliefs, your cultural background or your socioeconomic profile, no matter what the color of your skin — you share a common goal. You, like every mom, just want the best for yourself and the family you love.
How can you, and every mom, help make this goal a reality?
By voting.” - Heidi Murkoff...
