YogaVotes is a national, nonpartisan campaign to get yogis out to vote in 2012. Awareness, connection, and participation are core elements of yoga on the mat. They happen to be central to our civic life, too, whether that be at the most local level or in this year’s presidential campaign.
YogaVotes will encourage the 20 million Americans who practice yoga to take their values into the public sphere and into the voting booth. We will use traditional and cutting edge organizing tools to reach, activate, and encourage these folks to go to the polls on election day—especially in key states where our collective voices will have a noticeable impact.
