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.
This year, Primary Elections will be held on August 14th, but early voting is already open. Anytime between now and August 14th, you can either go in person to your town clerk or request a mail-in ballot and vote.
