The Progressive Voters Guide is a project of Progress Michigan PAC and Fuse Washington. Since 2008, we've combined the endorsements of leading progressive organizations with research about candidates and ballot measures to give you the information you've been searching for to be an informed voter. More than 5 million people have used the Progressive Voters Guide, and thousands come back each and every election for more of our thorough candidate research and trusted recommendations.
