You matter. Your vote matters.
Legislators make decisions every day that can help (or harm) the places where wildlife and people live. As a voter, you have the power to help choose those legislators.
Your vote does make a difference. The future for wildlife and communities hang in the balance during each election. Your vote affects how wildlife habitats and public lands are protected and how to combat climate change and how to ensure access to clean air and water.
Legislators know the power you wield as a voter. From the presidential race to local elections, your vote can decide who is in or out. It’s why the National Wildlife Federation supports civic participation and fair elections–so that you may flex your power to vote for issues that may matter to you like wildlife conservation and environmental protections.
