It’s 2021 – there are still millions of environmentalists who don’t vote  – Be part of Elders Promote the Vote – it’s proven to work

ECA continues its strong partnerships with the Environmental Voter Project (EVP) and Elders for Sound Democracy (ESD) to encourage millions of underrepresented voters to vote and have their votes counted. Research shows that people with strong environmentalist priorities are not always the most consistent voters. But they are easily persuaded to vote. We target these low voting strong environmentalists through phone and text banking.

 

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 a key participant in getting out this vote – from the comfort of your own home and/or in your own town or neighborhood. 

 

Elders Promote the Vote (ProVote) aims to significantly increase voter engagement by identifying inactive environmentalists and turning them into consistent voters. ProVote and partner Elders for Sound Democracy (ESD) continue to organize volunteer teams to text and call environmental voters to encourage voting and to help them navigate barriers to voting access.

 

We held hundreds of phone and text banks leading up to the 2020 election. Now we will expand our efforts to reach the millions of non-voting environmentalists still out there.

 

Join us for phone and text outreach to empower environmentalists

 

During the 2018, 2019 and 2020 elections, Elders Climate Action partnered with EVP to get out the vote. More than 300 volunteer voter outreach workers conducted texting and phone bank efforts in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia, reaching more than 500,000 potential voters.

 

This partnership, Elders Promote the Vote (ProVote), between ECA and EVP engaged more than 300 voter outreach volunteers for phone, text and postcard banks and contacted more than half a million voters in 2020. Once the pandemic began to disrupt elections, we shifted our focus from encouraging voting to helping voters plan how to vote safely. 

 

EVP’s research shows that our get-out-the-vote efforts were greatly effective in increasing voter turnout. In 2020, almost one million environmentalists contacted by ProVote and other EVP volunteers voted for the first time in their lives. 

 

We plan to have a large impact in 2021, and into the important 2022 mid-term election cycle. We will expand our efforts to reach the millions of non-voting environmentalists still out there.
