Here at Washington Conservation Voters, we work to elect environmentally responsible candidates across the state. Every year, we endorse candidates who we expect to be environmental champions as well as ballot measures that will protect and restore Washington’s environment.

Endorsement Process

Washington Conservation Voters issues endorsements to inform voters of which candidates running for office make environmental protection and creating a clean economy top priorities.

For new candidates to be considered for endorsement by Washington Conservation Voters, the candidates complete our questionnaire and are interviewed by our Endorsement Advisory Committee. The Endorsement Advisory Committee makes a recommendation to endorse or not endorse to the State Board which votes to confirm or deny the recommendation. The Endorsement Advisory Committee is comprised of citizens and State Board Members from around the state.

If a candidate has received our endorsement in the past they may qualify for our Early Endorsement which is determined by our Endorsement Advisory Committee and recommended to the State Board.
