Thank you to everyone who has helped so far with this initiative. We have reached a potential audience of over 12 million people. As I said, if even 1% of those people registered to vote, we have registered 120,000 new voters. 356,561 people engaged in posts associated with #CreativesVote
Among so many other issues, the environment and conservation is very important to me, and I believe it is imperative to do everything we can do to protect it.
Everyone has a stake in having their voices heard in politics. It’s clear to me that people feel jaded by the political system and cynical of any change in outcomes. This has caused a drastic drop in voting for young people - only 1 in 5 young, voting-age people vote. Young people ages 17-35 are more numerous than the baby boomer generation - our voices will be heard, but only if we vote.
The November 2020 election is one of the most pivotal in our lifetimes, and the result of this election will shape United States policy for decades. There are environmental issues, women rights issues, internet advocacy issues, corruption issues, and so much more on the line. This is where your influence comes in an important and long-lasting way. Getting just 1% of your audience to vote could tip a state in one direction or another. This is a significant and attainable goal.
If you’re down for the cause:
Stay tuned for November 2020 info
I want to educate anyone who wants to learn about the process or what’s at stake. I can answer specific questions about politicians, direct people to polling places, or help them get absentee ballots in order. It’s a big task, but this means a lot to me. I want to show that creatives have a say in the future and I want your voice to be a part of it.
Please reach out with any questions.
