As a company that turns to nature to recharge, heal and explore, we’re pledging to #VoteTheOutdoors in the upcoming elections. Outdoor recreation promotes healthy communities and healthy economies so we need more elected leaders in Washington, D.C. and statehouses across the country who recognize the power of the outdoor recreation economy.
The Outdoor Industry Association has put together their 2018 Voter’s Guide, a comprehensive look at initiatives that affect our public lands, as well as who is running and supports the Outdoor Recreation Economy:
The OIA’s 2018 Voter’s Guide includes watch-worthy races and information on state and local ballot measures (and why the OIA supports them).
Curious how your elected officials are voting on issues related to outdoor recreation? OIA has created an Advocacy Scorecard so you can see how politicians in your area rate on a scale of A-F.
Find your polling place with ease using this tool from RockTheVote.Org.
Without your help we are in danger of losing some of our favorite outdoor spaces and access to gear. This upcoming election is more important than ever so, no matter your political stripes, #VoteTheOutdoors.
