Vermont Conservation Voters Endorsements

In election years, Vermont Conservation Voters (VCV) endorses pro-environment candidates, and works to help elect our endorsed candidates. As a non-partisan organization, VCV has a long history of endorsing candidates from across the political spectrum who share our environmental values.

Through its endorsements, VCV aims to educate voters across Vermont on candidates whose values and actions demonstrate a commitment to ensuring Vermonters have access to clean air, clean water, clean energy, healthy forests, reduced exposure to toxic chemicals, and sustainable communities.

To inform our endorsement process, VCV closely tracks lawmakers’ actions at the State House, including key votes on environmental bills in our Environmental Scorecard and sponsorship of legislation that advances the Environmental Common Agenda of top legislative priorities, which VCV releases each legislative session in partnership with other advocacy organizations. For new candidates, VCV requires candidates to respond to a questionnaire that provides context on a candidate’s environmental background and positions on a range of issues facing the state. For statewide candidates, Board and staff invite candidates for an in-depth in-person interview.

The endorsements listed below were selected by the VCV Board of Directors in recognition of incumbent candidates with strong environmental voting records in 2017-2018 and over their lifetime (with little exception, endorsed candidates received an 80% or higher on our Environmental Scorecard), as well as new candidates who submitted strong questionnaires demonstrating their support for climate action, clean water, and other priorities.
