Vote for Clean Water!

· by

Local, state, and federal governments are all critical battlegrounds in the fight for clean water. Voting in this November’s election is an important action you can take to send a loud and clear message to elected officials that clean water is a priority.

What’s on the ballot?

There is a LOT on the ballot in Maryland this November, including all three statewide offices (governor, comptroller, attorney general) and a slew of local and statewide ballot initiatives. Find your sample ballot HERE to see what’s on the ballot in your district. 

While we cannot endorse candidates as an organization, we urge you to vote with environmental justice and public health in mind.
