We know there’s endless diversity within the voting community and these stories are best told by the people who live them. For the submissions portion of Politicking, we want yours.

Do you have a complicated identity or an unusual background? A fascinating career or an inspirational path to success? A weird political interest? An encounter with voter suppression? A life that defies stereotypes or illuminates an under-addressed experience?

Tell us about it.

This is not an op-ed but a personal essay; so be yourself. Make us cry, make us laugh, or fascinate us. Tell us, in your own voice, why your story matters.

Send pieces of no more than 700 words, plus a one-sentence biography, contact information, your Twitter handle, and a photo of yourself.

We’ll contact you if your story is selected for publication.
