The ELM Action Fund (3).png

It matters who represents you in the state Legislature. That’s why the ELM Action Fund is working to elect environmental champions and build political power for everyone here in Massachusetts who cares about a clean and healthy environment. To help voters understand who is the right choice for the environment this fall, we have created our 2016 Massachusetts Green Voter's Guide. Below you will find our list of 54 incumbents and challengers who have been endorsed by the ELM Action Fund. These candidates were selected after reviewing the candidate’s record on the environment as well as answers to our candidate questionnaires and in some cases interviews.  

Click on the name of an endorsed candidate to learn more about why we endorsed them and find their website to make a donation or get involved in the campaign.

We hope that you will take time to learn about the candidates and help support our efforts to elect our environmental champions. To learn more or to get involved with our work, please contact the ELM Action Fund at 617-742-0474.
