In Italy, they get 90% turnout in elections, in Germany, 80%, in Britain 75%. Even in Canada three weeks ago, in its most boring election ever with the lowest turnout in history, they hit 60%. Yet in the USA, turnout rarely tops 55%. It is amazing how in a country that prides itself on its freedom, barely half of its eligible citizens bother to turn out to practice it. Yet in every state there are choices to be made to vote for the environment and a green future.
