Get Ready To Vote

The climate needs your vote. Be sure you’re registered and ready.

Time To Vote On Climate

This year, the climate needs your vote more than ever. So this week, the biggest thing you can do is get ready to cast your ballot. 

The first thing to do is to make sure you’re registered to vote. You can check your registration and register if you’re not already here.

Once you’re registered, make a plan to vote. That’s a bit more complicated this year. Some states already mail all voters a ballot automatically, some states make it easy to vote by mail, and other states make it a bit harder to vote “absentee.” But we’re here to help! Check out this state-by-state guide to learn about your options. If you’d like some guided help applying for an absentee ballot, the Environmental Voter Project can help.

If you’re all set to vote yourself, and want to do more, then consider volunteering for a get-out-the-vote campaign. For example, you can phone or text bank with our friends at the Environmental Voter Project or 350.org. The pandemic is making it harder for non-profits to run voter drives, so they could really use your help.
