Vote Science Strong

Today, more than ever in recent history, the pivotal role research plays to the future of our nation, our communities, and our families is highly visible. 

Research!America’s national candidate-engagement initiative, Vote Science Strong, aims to elevate the importance of research and innovation in the national conversation this election season. Robust investments and policies favorable to public- and private-sector research are critical to improve health, strengthen the economy, and sustain our nation’s leadership in science and technology.

Join us in engaging candidates in making science and research a higher national priority. We've put together resources to make it easier to get involved.
