The 2020 Vermont Primary Election is approaching rapidly (August 11). More than 130,000 Vermont voters have already requested mail-in ballots for the election. As voters prepare to cast their ballots and make decisions on who will be on the ballot in the November election, VPIRG wanted to provide our members and the public clarity on where the candidates for statewide office stand on critical public interest issues. Use this guide to see – in their own words – where candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor stand on these issues. If a candidate did not complete the questionnaire that is noted here. (Note: VPIRG plans to publish questionnaires for other statewide offices ahead of the November election)
