According to the Cooperative Election Study, atheists are the most politically active group in the country, with agnostics slightly behind them.
Atheists show up for more political meetings, donate more money to candidates, and attend more protests than Christians do. We hear all the time about how politically active evangelical Christians are, but atheists are more active than evangelicals in every category of political activity.
Atheists are also overwhelmingly progressive.
Atheists pull more than their weight for the Democratic Party. This year, with resistance to Christian Nationalism at the forefront of Democratic voters' minds, atheist activity has become especially essential.
If you're lucky and you're represented by one or more Democrats after this Election Day... thank an atheist.
