Environmental Non-Voters by Zip-Code
There’s no doubt about it - climate change is big and scary. In fact, sometimes it’s so scary that it becomes hard to think clearly about out how we, as individuals, can fight against something so enormous.
But there’s one really easy thing that each of us can do today.
In fact, you can do it right now - it only takes 2 minutes and it will have a big impact.

Yep, that’s all.
I know...I know...you’re wondering how signing a simple online pledge will actually make a difference in the fight against climate change. But it will make a big difference -- both in Massachusetts and across the country -- and here’s why.
One of the biggest reasons that politicians don’t address climate change is that voters aren’t forcing them to address it. In every poll of likely voters (for almost any election), voters list climate change as one of their lowest priorities. Yes, even here in Massachusetts.
Why don’t voters prioritize climate change? Because we have a “turnout” problem -- the people who care most about climate change don’t vote. In fact, 15.78 million Americans who deeply care about climate change didn’t vote in the last midterm election, and 10.1 million didn’t even vote in the last Presidential election.
In Massachusetts alone, 277,250 environmentalists skipped the 2014 gubernatorial election and 139,975 didn’t even vote for President in 2012.
In short, our people aren’t showing up to vote, so the Environmental Voter Project is using this simple pledge to help you show up...to every single election.
Studies have shown that if you sign this pledge to vote (and then we remind you of the pledge before each election), your likelihood of voting skyrockets. It’s an easy, effective way to help you be a more consistent voter.
Are you already a perfect voter? Please sign the pledge anyway! The more people who pledge to vote, the easier it is to convince others to join you!
We know you care about climate change, and we know that you want to be a consistent voter...so let us help you. We’ll never tell you who to vote for -- we just want to help you remember to vote.

If we flood the electorate with new environmental voters, politicians will have no choice but to listen...and to act.
