Energy figures to be an important voting issue come November in a number of key states, new polling indicates. In separate surveys conducted by Harris Poll registered voters in Florida, Missouri, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania – 70 percent or more in each state – said they are more likely to favor a candidate who supports increasing oil and natural gas production and energy infrastructure.
Another result that could generate traction in this fall’s elections: More than 60 percent of registered voters in each of the states said they think the federal government doesn’t do enough to encourage the development of the nation’s energy infrastructure.

Check out the slideshow below for a visual on the new “Vote 4 Energy” campaign – as currently seen in the Capitol South Metro station.
The goal is to raise voter awareness of energy issues in this election year. The hope is more Americans will see their vote this year as key to a pro-energy development approach that could create jobs, generate tax revenues for our government and help make America more secure.

Will Americans vote energy in 2012? We think they should, and API President and CEO Jack Gerard made a compelling argument for it yesterday at the second State of American Energy event in Washington, D.C.
Gerard’s speech was both an appeal and a signal. The appeal: America’s oil and natural gas industry believes there’s never been a better time for a fact-based debate on energy that focuses on ways to help make this country more energy self-reliant and more secure. The signal: API’s new Vote 4 Energy campaign is under way, designed to persuade American voters to be energy-issue voters in this election year.

Challenge: Getting more Americans to see themselves as energy-issue voters in 2012.
Solution: API’s Vote 4 Energy campaign, launched today at the second State of American Energy event at Washington, D.C.’s Newseum.
In a keynote speech President and CEO Jack Gerard framed the energy-related issues upon which API hopes to engage Americans with the new informational campaign:
- America as an energy-rich nation.
- America’s oil and natural gas industry as a tremendous catalyst for job creation, economic growth and energy production.
- Energy as key to America’s future security.
