No one is in a better position to understand how policy affects science than working scientists themselves. Scientists & Engineers for America Action Fund and ScienceBlogs asked several well-known figures in science—including recent Nobel Prize winner Martin Chalfie and “father of the Internet” Vint Cerf”—who they plan to vote for in the upcoming presidential election. They’ve recorded YouTube videos explaining their answers, which you can see on the AVoteForScience YouTube channel.
But we are also asking for contributions from you—whether you’re a post-doc, chair of your department, or work in industry. If you’re a scientist, we want to know who you’re voting for and why. ScienceBlogger Jennifer Jacquet has already uploaded her own video, below.
To submit your own, simply upload it to YouTube with the tag “AVoteForScience.” We encourage you to check out the rest of the videos as they’re posted.
