Be a Clean Water Voter This Midterm Election

Your Vote. Your Voice.

We are just weeks away from the 2022 midterm elections, and with the House and the Senate hanging in the balance, every race matters. What’s potentially at stake? Continued federal action to fight the climate crisis, bills to tackle toxins like PFAS, and legislation to protect voting access. Check out our New Jersey endorsements, and then read on to find out your options to vote this year!

In New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, Clean Water Action has endorsed Tom Malinowski. Congressman Malinowski has maintained a perfect environmental voting record. He stood with farmers, landowners, and environmental activists to defeat the dirty PennEast pipeline, and he is a champion of New Jersey’s clean energy sector. This will most likely be a close race, so make sure you share this endorsement with your NJ friends and family!

We have also endorsed:

  • Andy Kim - CD3
  • Frank Pallone - CD6
  • Tom Malinowski - CD7
  • Bill Pascrell - CD8
  • Donald Payne - CD 10
  • Mikie Sherrill - CD11
  • Bonnie Watson-Coleman - CD12
