Nonpartisan Electoral Activities

July 14, 2017

NYLCVEF’s nonpartisan electoral activities usually take place leading up to an election and seek to educate voters and candidates on the critical connection between elected office and environmental protections and by encouraging environmentalists to vote. Activities include candidate forums, “get out the vote” campaigns, and environmental candidate schools that educate prospective politicians on environmental issues and the importance of adding them to their campaign platform and legislative agenda.
