Exercise Your Right To Vote

As conservationists, we use our voices to protect the outdoor spaces we love. Time and time again, The Mountaineers community has taken action on a wide range of issues surrounding public lands and recreation. We are proud to have a long history of protecting public lands and spearheading conservation efforts. Just like the action alerts and conservation opportunities you support and share, November 3 is a day to use your voice and take part in the democratic process. Make sure you have a plan and exercise your right to vote. 

We will be gathering resources here over the coming weeks to help you navigate the voting process and make your voice heard.
