WBUR Cognoscenti: So You're Serious About Climate Change: Vote In Your Local Elections

After the trauma of the 2020 election cycle, the American people would be forgiven for seeking a brief break from politics. We lived through a bitter presidential campaign, two runoff elections in Georgia to determine control of the U.S. Senate, and an armed insurrection at the Capitol, all amidst a global pandemic. It should come as no surprise that this has left voters, volunteers and donors with a serious case of election fatigue.

5 States Where Environmental Voters Could Have a Huge Impact in 2016

Elections are decided by the people who actually show up...and environmentalists don't always show up. Using big data analytics, predictive modeling, and public voter files, the Environmental Voter Project has discovered that 15.78 million environmentalists don't vote in mid-term elections, and a whopping 10.1 million didn't even vote in the 2012 Presidential election.

Citizen's Climate Lobby: Environmental Voter Project helped put climate near top of national agenda

At Citizens’ Climate Lobby, we often say the solution to climate change is democracy. Well, the first step to engage with our democracy is voting. Research shows, however, that many who are concerned about the state of our climate don’t even take that initial step. In fact, tens of millions of people who identify as environmentalists have been no-shows at the polls on election day.
