We have released our final round of endorsed candidates for the 2014 state general elections! Along with the 108 previously endorsed candidates, this final round includes 6 House of Delegates candidates who are committed to action on environmental issues and ready to lead Maryland in making the environment a priority.
We also support ballot question #1 on the important issue of a transportation lockbox.
It is our goal is to persuade voters to support the best environmental candidates. We know this is even more important in open seats where candidates may not have established records. Voters may not have the time or resources to interview each candidate and review positions on environmental issues, but they can rely us to do that the voters.
Please follow us on twitter @MDLCV and the hashtag #MDVotesGreen2014 for information regarding our endorsed candidates.

“As in the primary elections, the Maryland League of Conservation Voters’ goal is to persuade voters to support the best environmental candidates. We know this is even more important in open seats where candidates may not have established records,” said Chuck Porcari, Political Committee Chair of Maryland LCV’s Board. “Voters may not have the time or resources to interview each candidate and review positions on environmental issues, but they can rely on the Maryland League of Conservation Voters to do that for them."
More endorsements will be released in the coming weeks and months, with more rounds before the November 4th General election. Please follow us on twitter @MDLCV and the hashtag #MDVotesGreen2014 for more up to date environmental endorsements.
The Maryland League of Conservation Voters is conducting independent expenditures during the 2014 Election Cycle. You may view copies of our report listed as "League of Conservation Voters, Maryland here.
The environment was a clear winner this election cycle.
Nearly 90% of our 112 endorsed #MDVotesGreen2014 candidates have been elected in their primary election and they are one step closer to representing us in the Maryland General Assembly.
We set out to elect a pro-conservation Administration and Attorney General, build a pro-conservation majority in the Senate, and maintain a pro-conservation majority in the House of Delegates . With a large number of open seats and contested races, we made unprecedented investments in coordinated and independent campaigns this primary season to move voters to Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown, Ken Ulman, Brian Frosh, Jim Brochin and Brooke Lierman, among others.
Thank you for your support and now onto the General Election in November!
