The Environmental Voter Project (EVP) is a nonprofit whose research shows that there are over 15 million environmentalists who don't vote in most elections. EVP's #1 goal is to get these environmentalists to the polls in order to dramatically increase voter demand for progressive environmental policy. Using cutting-edge techniques, EVP (1) individually identifies the millions of already persuaded (but seldom-voting) environmentalists, (2) consistently gets them to vote in every election, regardless of who is on the ballot. We are non-partisan and we do not endorse candidates; instead, we will steadily change the electorate and bring voter turnout to a tipping point of overwhelming demand for strong environmental leadership.
