About the Progressive Voters Guide

The Progressive Voters Guide is a joint project of Fuse Washington and Progress Virginia. Our staff research and compile the endorsements from our Progressive Voters Guide partner organizations, which are listed below. In most cases, we recommend candidates and ballot measures that have been endorsed by at least one of these partner organizations. In races where the endorsements are split, we strive to show voters which candidate has received the most support. We also seek input from partners and local community members to determine a candidate’s values and priorities.

Unfortunately, we are not able to make recommendations for every candidate in every jurisdiction. If you believe we have omitted a key race or made an error, please let us know by using the “feedback” link above.
