Holding Legislators Accountable

To make sure elected officials are representing our conservation values, we have to hold them accountable for every vote.

We serve as watchdog for Maine’s environment. When a legislator does something good or bad, we let their constituents, the media, and other legislators know. Each year we release our Legislative Scorecard, which grades legislators’ votes on environmental bills and gives voters the information they need to elect conservation champions.

Electing Champions For Maine's Environment

To protect the environment, we need the right laws in place. To pass the right laws, we need to elect the right lawmakers.

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

Organizing In Maine Communities For Climate Action

To encourage our elected officials to stand up for the environment, we need to engage and energize activists across the state.

In spring of 2017 we partnered with the League of Conservation Voters to launch Climate Action Maine, a project of MCV. Climate Action Maine is a field program dedicated to engaging Maine people in timely environmental issues. By growing our grassroots network, we can have a more powerful response to attacks on Maine’s environment and make sure that our voice is heard at the State House and in Washington, D.C.

Leading Collaboration In The Environmental Community

To make sure the environment is a priority at the State House, we need to combine power and work together with other organizations. 

Each year our sister organization Maine Conservation Alliance (MCA) convenes Maine’s Environmental Priorities Coalition, a coalition of 34 environmental, conservation, and public health organizations that represent over 100,000 members. MCA facilitates the process by which the coalition determines its legislative priorities and guides collaboration throughout the legislative session to ensure we have the greatest impact on the issues that matter most.
