Vote for Science is a network-wide initiative focused on registering voters and championing evidence-based policies in the 2018 mid-term elections. Each month, we will focus on a different theme. You can learn more about the national campaign here.

Actively advocating for science by regularly contacting your representatives on a local and national level is a vital step in ensuring that science informs policy.  But don't stop there!  If you are eligible to vote, turn out for every election from your school board to the presidency to support pro-science candidates.  Below are ways to support our Vote for Science efforts.
