The midterm elections of 2018 saw the highest recorded voter turnout since 1914. The result? A record-breaking group of Congressional freshmen, with a significant number running on environmentally focused platforms. The Environmental Voter Project, launched by Nathaniel Stinnett in 2015, attributes some of this momentous turnout to a rise in environmental voters, which nearly doubled since the last midterm, in 2014.
