This Tuesday, November 8th is election day in the United States. If you care about the climate, it’s important that you vote — not just in the Presidential election, but up and down the ballot.

Democracy is a key part of climate justice: it’s how we make sure that the government listens to the people, not polluters. The more people who head to the ballot box with climate on their minds, the easier our jobs will be the next time we try to stop a pipeline, shut down a coal plant, or defend our communities from climate disasters. Big oil and friends may have money, but money can’t vote — and we can.

It really helps to make a plan when you go to vote — even if you’ve voted before and think you have it down. (Part of my plan? Fresh juice, every time I vote).

First, look up where you’re going to vote, and decide how you’re going to get there. It may have changed from the last time you voted. You can find your voting location here.

Second, make sure you know who, and what, is on the ballot. Lots of important races up and down the ballot, and many places have ballot measures where you can weigh in on policy too. Find your ballot here.

Third, pick a time to do it, and give yourself a reminder. It’s easy to get distracted on a busy news day. I picked first thing in the morning, and put it on my Google calendar so I don’t forget.

Then, go vote! Get that sticker!

Last, tell people about it. Peer pressure really works. More people vote when they see their friends around them doing it. ‘I Voted!’ selfies very welcome.

By Wednesday Nov. 9th we’ll know a lot more about what the next 4 years will look like in the US. When we do, it will be time to get back to work: on stopping the Dakota Access pipeline, divesting from fossil fuels, exposing Exxon’s lies.

I’m ready, let’s go.
