Everyone says elections matter, so think about what matters to you. If you care about the environment, then it is important to take action to vote in all elections. Policy decisions are made every day, from the local to the national level, and these decisions impact what we care about. If you care about birds, then policies that affect not only wildlife but also clean air and water, protected areas, endangered species, land use, illegal trade, pollutants, environmental education, and agency funding are all important. So, take the time to study how those seeking positions of power in government, at all levels, have spoken or voted about the environment, then take your informed opinion to the ballot box and vote on that most important day of the year!
