Vote for the Birds

DON'T WING IT THIS ELECTION: MAKE A PLAN TO VOTE

Birds can’t vote, but as one of the millions of Americans who care about them—you can. 

In addition to the presidential race, there are countless state and local elections happening nationwide this year that will have a big impact on our communities and our birds. These decision makers have an important influence on the ways that laws are written and enacted at every level of government.

When it comes to voting, be sure you have your ducks in a row. Here are some questions to help you make your plan:

How are you voting?

  • Will you be dropping off your ballot or are you going to vote in person?
  • If you are dropping off your ballot, be sure to follow the instructions about preparing your ballot, such as where you need to sign, etc.
  • If you are going to the polls, what time are you voting? Remember to wear comfortable shoes and consider packing binoculars so you can enjoy birds while you are waiting for your turn to vote!

Where are you voting?

  • Where is your polling location?
  • Have you double-checked that you are registered and that your voting registration is updated to your current address?
  • Do you know how you are getting to your polling location?

Do you need resources to answer these questions?

Once you have made your voting plan and know when and where you're going to vote, you can be a leader in your community simply by encouraging three friends to vote.
