Vermont’s Primary Election has begun with early voting – more than 45,000 Vermonters have already requested mail-in ballots. Early voting continues until the physical polling places open on August 9.
The Vermont-NEA Board of Directors, as is its customary practice, has not issued recommendations in any federal or statewide primary, except for an early nod to Rep. Peter Welch, who is running for Vermont’s open US Senate seat. However, you can see the candidates for US House, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, and Secretary of State spar in several Vermont-NEA sponsored debates.
We’ve also included a link to our candidate questionnaire, which spells out our union’s position on issues affecting students, educators, parents, schools, unions, and working families.
We’ve also included links to candidates in a few, key Vermont Senate and House races in which the Vermont-NEA Board issued recommendations.
As always, regardless of your party or your chosen candidates, please make sure to vote by August 9.
