The Great Lakes face many threats — from invasive species to failing water infrastructure to harmful algal blooms. To protect our water, we need elected officials at all levels of government who are willing to stand up for the Great Lakes. 

We’ve created a new toolkit to help Great Lakes voters like you stand up for the Great Lakes in the 2018 midterm elections.

In 2018, many federal and state offices are on the ballot around the Great Lakes region. Seven of eight governorships are on the ballot, along with eight U.S. Senate seats. And, all seats in the U.S. House of Representatives seats are up for election in the fall. 

Right now, we have an opportunity to encourage candidates to stand up for the Great Lakes and hold them accountable once elected.

Protect the Great Lakes This Election Season: A Toolkit for Getting Involved

About this Toolkit:
As a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Alliance for the Great Lakes cannot support or oppose candidates or political parties. However, we can, and do, educate candidates and voters on Great Lakes issues. This toolkit is designed to give you the information and tools you need to be part of the Great Lakes conversation in the 2018 midterm elections.
