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.

Interested in learning how we select candidates and ballot measures to endorse? Read more about WCV’s endorsement process.

We do not endorse in every single race each year so we recommend waiting until you receive an invite from us to participate in our endorsement process or reaching out before filling out the questionnaire.

If you are running for a non-legislative office please email us to ask about a specific questionnaire for your race.

If you have any endorsement questions, please email: endorsements@wcvoters.org.

Washington Conservation Voters is committed to equal opportunity, and committed to maintaining an accessible and equitable endorsement process. Accommodations for the endorsement process are available and will be made upon request. Please complete this form regarding accommodations or accommodations requests. We welcome feedback on the accessibility of our website and endorsements process.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we expect to hold all endorsement interviews in April and May by video conference rather than in person.

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. All candidates to be considered for endorsement by Washington Conservation Voters must complete our questionnaire. The Washington Conservation Voters Political Committee reviews completed questionnaires and may choose to interview candidates. The Political Committee votes to endorse candidates for all positions that are not statewide. For statewide races, the Political Committee makes a recommendation to the full State Board which votes to confirm or deny the recommendation. To view our full Endorsement Policies and Procedures, click here. If you would like to be considered for our endorsement or are interested in serving on our Political Committee, please email our Political Director at endorsements@wcvoters.org
