The League of American Bicyclists (LAB) has published “An Advocate’s Guide to Elections: Making Campaigns Work for Bicycling & Walking.” It is available to download, free, from the LAB’s web site.
According to Darren Flusche, LAB’s Policy Director, “elections matter. During the election cycle, campaigns give bicycling and walking advocacy organizations the opportunity to educate candidates on bicycling issues, increase the focus on bicycling and walking issues in campaigns, and ultimately build a more bicycle‐friendly America. These activities make a difference. For instance, Bike Delaware used a candidate survey to gauge support for a funding initiative that resulted in $20 million in state funds for a statewide bicycling and walking network. This guide includes insight and examples from Bike Delaware’s survey — and much more.”
