What You Can Do
Elected officials, from the Governor’s office to local city councils, make policy decisions every day that affect our quality of life. These public figures shape how we travel to work or school, what our community looks like, and how clean our drinking water is. When we vote, we make our voice heard. Here are four easy ways for you to get engaged and take action now:
1. Register to Vote
As voters, we make a powerful statement about what we think our community should look like every time we fill out our ballot. The easiest, most effective way you can make a difference for the environment is registering to vote – and voting in every election.
2. Get Informed
Learn about the issues on your ballot by visiting your County Auditor's website and reading your local voter guide pamphlet.
3. Come phone bank with us
For the third year in a row, WEC’s Voter Education Program has teamed up with El Centro de la Raza to conduct a Get Out the Vote effort to 60,000 Latino voters across the state. For the rest of the month, WEC and El Centro will be conducting volunteer phone banks.
If you’re in the Seattle area, we’d love to have your help. Phone banks are every Wednesday in October from 5:30 to 7:30 pm. For more information or to RSVP, contact Shannon Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org or 206.621.2628.
