At Seventh Generation, we’re fighting to increase voter turn-out for the 2020 election and standing up for voter rights so that each and every registered voter feels safe and heard. There’s a lot at stake in this election. The climate crisis is at a tipping point, and the health of future generations is in the crosshairs, which means election outcomes will be felt for years. That’s why it’s so important to vote on behalf of those who can’t yet cast a ballot. A vote this year is a vote so that kids seven generations from now get to grow up on a healthy planet. They’re counting on us RIGHT NOW. Raise your voice, use your vote, and join us!

Almost everything about 2020 has challenged us to adjust our perspective and embrace a new normal. Election day will be no exception. Here’s a few tips and things to remember.
- There will probably NOT be a clear winner on election day. But that’s okay. Poll workers and election officials will need extra time to process and verify an unprecedented number of mail-in ballots this year, which take more time to count and verify. Be prepared to wait.
- Election Day and the days beyond may feel confusing. That’s okay, too. Our democratic systems are strong and resilient enough to deliver a fair outcome, even if things look different due to COVID. Ignore the static. Our democracy is built to last.
- We all get to choose what media we consume and share. TV networks have time to fill, and social media will be buzzing. As you listen, comment, and share, be kind to yourself and others. Seek truth. Trust the process. Be a good citizen.
- An accurate result is worth waiting for. Be patient, take a deep breath, and remember that a free, secure election means taking the time to make sure every vote is counted. Democracy is worth the wait.
On a mission to create a more healthy, sustainable, and equitable world for the next seven generations and beyond.
