As we continue to watch for final election results in several key races across the country, we first want to say thank you. Thank you for voting. Thank you for being concerned citizens weighing candidates’ positions on animal protection issues when you cast your ballot. And thank you for participating in one of the most crucial functions of our democratic republic.

Our supporters are accustomed to hearing from us at HSLF about federal legislation, policy, and elections, but our work—and our impact for animals—extends far beyond Washington, D.C. We keep a close watch on critical local and state legislation and on politics that may have an impact on animals. And every year, HSLF’s team then meets with candidates seeking election to state and local offices, and in many instances HSLF issues endorsements and campaigns on their behalf.

Election Day will determine the composition of the U.S. Congress for 2023 and 2024. Every member of the U.S. House of Representatives and 35 seats in the U.S. Senate are up for election this year—and the consequences for animals will be profound. Passing humane laws at the federal level begins by electing humane candidates to Congress. That’s why your HSLF meets with candidates, examines their records, and supports those whose commitments to animal protection are clear.
