Local elections are also critical to changing the national landscape! This year, NARAL Pro-Choice Washington endorsed pro-choice candidates seeking election as city and county council members, mayors, and county executives.
Endorsed candidates work hard for their endorsement. We endorse candidates when they complete an in-depth issue questionnaire and have a demonstrated comprehensive understanding of our issue during an in-person interview with our Membership. These candidates have identified specific policy proposals for how they would use their office to advance reproductive freedom. You can count on them to go above and beyond for reproductive freedom if they are elected.
You may also see the 100% Pro-Choice rating. This is NOT an endorsement. We use this rating when there is more than one good candidate in the race who shares our pro-choice values and who we would trust to vote the right way on our issues if elected. In the cases where we list more than one candidate as 100% Pro-Choice and endorse none, it means that all candidates are safe bets for a Pro-Choice voter. We also use this rating if we endorse one candidate in a race, but the other candidate in the same race isn’t anti-choice. In summary, a 100% Pro-Choice listing is our way of telling you which candidates are pro-choice and which aren’t.
