Tomorrow Is Election Day—Make Your Voice Heard!

With so many critical issues facing our country, making sure your voice is heard at the ballot box tomorrow is more important than ever. On November 4, Americans will be electing all 435 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and 36 U.S. Senators, as well as many governors, state senators and representatives, and local elected officials. These individuals will be making policy that will have tremendous impact—for better or worse—on the lives of our nation’s animals for the next two to six years. It is crucial that you take this opportunity to put elected officials into office who will fight for what you believe in.

Voters in Michigan and Maine will have an especially critical opportunity to protect animals at the ballot box by directly weighing in on two forms of cruelty to wildlife and dogs. We are urging Michigan voters to say no to the trophy hunting of wolves by voting NO on Proposals 1 and 2. Mainers have the chance to end three intolerably cruel and unsporting bear hunting practices by voting YES on Question 1.

We encourage everyone to plan ahead to make sure their voice is heard. This means knowing your polling location and hours and what important documents you might need to bring with you to your polling center. Use the map on this page to connect with your state’s election office.

With so much at stake, please research your candidates’ positions and voting records on the issues that matter most to you. Many of tomorrow’s elections will be won by tiny margins, so please get out and vote!
