Elections

In election years, VCV endorses pro-environment candidates, and works to get these candidates elected. As a non-partisan organization, VCV has a long history of endorsing Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Progressives.

In Vermont, elections for the state legislature (House and Senate) and for statewide offices (Governor, Lt. Governor, Secretary of State, Treasurer, and Attorney General) are held every two years, in the even numbered year. There are no term limits. 

In deciding whether to endorse a candidate, VCV examines their voting record, asks them survey questions about key environmental issues, and in some cases, interviews them.
