Make 2020 the Year of the Environmental Voter – Be Part of Elders Promote the Vote

ECA has formed a partnership with the Environmental Voter Project (EVP) to encourage millions of strong environmentalists to vote in the 2020 election. Research shows that people with strong environmentalist priorities are not always the most consistent voters. But they are very persuadable to vote. Starting in March 2019, ECA will be forming and training teams to text, call and canvass in their own communities and swing states. We will cut our teeth on a few critical 2019 races, and then massively scale up our efforts for 2020.

You can text from your smart phone, tablet or computer.

During the 2018 elections, Elders Climate Action partnered with EVP to get out the vote. We conducted  “Get out the Vote” efforts in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Pennsylvania, reaching more than 231,000 registered voters.  Early research shows that our GOTV efforts were effective in increasing voter turnout. Our efforts in the 2018 elections resulted in thousands of pro-environment votes, and we are scaling up to have a much larger impact in 2020.

We need to start now to build our capacity for a high impact “get out the vote” (GOTV) initiative. This is a people-driven campaign, and we need your help to make 2020 the Year of the Environmental Voter.

Please join us by completing the form below, we will send you upcoming training information and help to get you started on Hustle (the texting platform).  Learn how you can get in on the ground floor of building our national Elders Promote the Vote initiative and forming state and local teams. We will review the science behind EVP’s innovative approach to increasing the environmentalist voice in public policy, introduce you to the powerful voter outreach tools available to us, and begin the process of organizing a high impact initiative.

A recent analysis of nation-wide elections shows that over 15 million individually identifiable environmentalists don’t regularly vote. Therefore, the key to getting powerful environmental policies in place might not be to persuade more Americans to be environmentalists; it may be as simple as getting more of our existing environmentalists to vote. You can be key in getting out this vote from the comfort of your home or, depending on where you live, in your own neighborhood. Join us March 19 to find out how you can be part of the “Elders Promote the Vote” effort.  

Elders Promote the Vote aims to significantly increase voter demand for environmental leadership by identifying inactive environmentalists and then turning them into consistent activists and voters.
