The Labor of Love

MCV and the national League of Conservation Voters (LCV) along with hundreds of grassroots volunteers helped bring out the vote in the November 7th, 2006 mid-term election.

  • Involved over 300 members, volunteers and staff in the door-to-door and phone calling program and legislative action program;
  • Knocked on 16,000 doors in Kalispell, Columbia Falls, Lolo, Missoula, Bozeman, Livingston, Helena, Joliet, and Billings to communicate with voters about conservation issues and candidates;
  • Mailed nearly 68,000 pieces of conservation voter information to voters in key districts across the state;
  • Made over 22,000 calls to voters in the weekend’s final get out the vote activities;
  • Provided voter participation services to over 300 people requesting voter registration and absentee ballot information, increasing citizen participation in the democratic process.
