This year’s midterm election has huge implications for energy issues in the Southeast, and we are hearing that voters have been turning out in record numbers to make their voice heard. Elected leaders in local, state, and federal offices drive policy decisions that impact energy choices in your community. Voting for leaders that reflect your values has never been more important. The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy is committed to promoting civic engagement and factual, non-partisan resources to help voters understand where candidates stand on energy issues.
If you haven’t already cast your ballot during early voting, please make a plan to vote for clean energy champions on Election Day, Nov. 6. Here are some helpful links to make sure you are prepared before you head to the polls:
- Use BallotReady.org to find out which candidates and amendments are on your ballot
- Read through our candidate profiles to learn where candidates in key races stand on energy issues: Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee

- Remind your friends and family to vote by sharing these resources on social media: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
Thank you and happy voting!
