Vote For The Environment
Check your status, register to vote or just get reminder texts using UVM's tool here. If you missed your home state's deadline you can still register to vote in Vermont up until and including election day 11/3!

Educate yourself on the topics and candidates you'll be voting for using nonpartisan sites like Vote Smart, Ballotready or Ballotpedia. Being a socially conscious voter also means pondering candidates thoughts on the climate crisis & toxic pollution:
  • Will they commit to respect the independence of federally funded scientific research and enact evidence-based regulations that mitigate the risks of climate change, pollution, and toxic exposures?
  • What is their plan to address climate change?
  • How would they improve the US response to extreme weather events, particularly for low-income and marginalized communities?
