The Trust for Public Land - LandVote 2010
 The November 2010 midterm elections saw historic victories for land conservation. Of the 36 conservation funding measures on the ballot nationwide, 30 passed, creating more than $2 billion in new funding for land conservation and capping a year of 41 wins out of 49 measures. The 84 percent passage rate was the second-highest ever.

These successes follow the record-breaking general election of 2008, in which voters backed 63 of the 89 state and local conservation finance measures. The 2008 victories generated a single-day record of $7.3 billion in new funding for parks and open space—despite a difficult economic climate.

Even in a difficult economy and polarized political climate, Americans of all ideologies continue to invest in the health of their land, air, and water.
