It’s been a long few years, but the final day of campaign 2020 is finally here. Tuesday, November 3, is our last chance to vote and put environmental champions in charge of North Carolina and national policy before it’s too late. We must win these elections in order to fight climate change, transition to clean energy, and protect human health and our environment across the board.
If you haven’t yet voted, click here to find your polling location. Polls are open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. At that link, you can also find the address of your county board of elections, where you should drop off your absentee ballot if you have not already. Though ballots can be received until November 12 if postmarked by November 3, we suggest making sure it counts by dropping it off in person rather than trusting the mail.
Before you vote, make sure to consult our Conservation PAC’s endorsements for Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Commissioner of Agriculture, and state Senate and House, as well as national LCV Action Fund’s endorsements for President, U.S. Senate, and House.
If you have voted, now it is your duty to get your friends, family, and neighbors out to vote for environmental champions on the local, state, and national levels. Call them, text them, video chat them. Make sure they have a plan and know where and when they will be voting and for whom.
Finally, with just one day left in this election, many competitive candidates will still be in search of more volunteers tonight and tomorrow for final GOTV (get out the vote) phone banking, door knocking, and poll greeting. For down-ballot contests like state legislature, this activity can make a significant difference in their vote total by drawing positive attention to a contest in which many voters would have neglected to cast a vote.
You can help push an environmental champion over the finish line: pick one of Conservation PAC’s endorsees, and contact their campaign to volunteer. With virtual phone banks, you can all from the comfort of your own home.
Let’s all act now! November 4 will be too late.
