To protect Maine's environment and democracy, we need the right laws in place. To pass the right laws, we need to elect the right lawmakers.

Elected officials’ countless decisions – protecting our pristine lakes and spectacular rocky coastline, forwarding clean energy policies, safeguarding voting rights, and advancing racial justice and equity – impact our families and our homes.

Maine Conservation Voters uses our political power to elect environmental leaders who will advocate for laws that protect Maine's natural resources, communities, democracy, outdoor heritage, and climate future – regardless of party affiliation.

We know that the environment is not a partisan issue in Maine – it is part of our way of life. Using the strategic tools we have developed, we influence elections and successfully elect conservation champions on both sides of the aisle.

Once elected, we hold lawmakers accountable. Throughout the legislative session, we educate Maine people about their legislators’ votes and make it easy for them to contact lawmakers on important issues. At the end of each session, we distribute our annual Environmental Scorecard to thousands of people across the state to keep voters informed and engaged.
