2018 Progressive Candidates & Ballot Initiatives: A Nationwide List

Dig into a comprehensive list of diverse progressive candidates running in the 2018 elections. They range from grassroots activists, to members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. You’ll meet a former judge calling out Congressional Dues, a professional clown aiming to represent hardworking fast-food workers, and an almost anonymous techie who refuses to accept campaign donations of any kind.

However, if you’re in a hurry, just click on a state’s abbreviation to quickly scroll to that specific section of the list. If your screen is large enough, the state abbreviations will remain visible in the sidebar on the right, and greatly facilitate your perusal of this rather long list of progressive champions.

Have fun prepping your votes for the 2018 primaries and November election!

Last updated May 22, 2018

AL, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CO, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MT, NENV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT, VA, WA, WV, WI, WY

(12 Republican candidates are in the mix. Hint: 🐘)

The list is intended to be a handy information resource, study aid, or launching point for further research. But as it was compiled, it also grew into a bolstering testimony of America’s modern Progressive Movement. If you explore the list, follow the links, and verify for yourself, you will be astounded by the gathering progressive force in our nation.

Naturally, some candidates are more progressive than others. So a minimal progressive standard was set for the list: candidates must prioritize at least one of the following two topics in his or her platform:

  • Medicare for All (i.e., universal health care, single-payer)
  • Getting money out of politics (campaign finance reform, end gerrymandering, overturn Citizens United, etc.)

Because of the nonpartisan nature of the latter issue, some Republicans and Libertarians made the list. By virtue of their strong opposition to the corrupting influence of money in politics, progressives may consider these conservatives to be allies in the fight against systemic political corruption.

(Inclusion on the list ≠ endorsement. Study and verify for yourself.)

Share this list. As Gil Scott-Heron sang, “The revolution will not be televised.” Encourage others. Please make sure everyone knows that, indeed, the political revolution is on!


How to Use the List

Other criteria may carry more weight for you than health care or political corruption. Follow a candidate’s website and social media links to learn where he or she stands on various progressive topics.

Most of the candidates on the list are running for a national office. Follow your state’s Ballotpedia link to view the down-ballot races in your area.

(Links are a lovely shade of scarlet red — you’ll see them!)

Though not listed here, there are plenty of nice, decent, moderate Democrats running in 2018. If no progressives run in your state or district, one of the moderates may well be your best voting option. Follow the pertinent Ballotpedia link to drill down and find them.

Mid-Term General Election & Primary Elections

The U.S. Congress is crucial to balancing power in the government. Electing members to Congress may be more important than electing the President. Congress holds the power to declare war. Congress writes the federal laws by which we live.

Be sure to vote in the November 6, 2018 mid-term General Election — to put progressives in Congress. But before you do that…

Be sure to vote in your state’s Primary Election — to put progressives on the ballot for November.

Many states require party registration long before the state primary election is held. The first state primary is in March. You may visit the following online voter resources for more information about your local elections, the candidates, and ballot initiatives.

  • U.S. Vote Foundation – Voting dates and requirements for your state
  • Ballotpedia – “The Encyclopedia of American Politics,” including ballot initiatives and sample ballots
  • US Elections – At-a-glance one-page election info (does a good job covering D.C. races)
  • Open Secrets – Check the campaign funding sources of national candidates
  • GovTrack.us – Track federal legislation by subject or member of Congress

Support Progressive Candidates

If you don’t have a progressive candidate to support in your own area, please consider financial contributions to worthy candidates in other states. A Progressive Congress benefits the entire country.

Share this list to support progressive candidates and the Progressive Movement. It doesn’t cost a penny, yet helps to amplify the progressive message. Which in turn, helps get progressive candidates elected.

You may also use the list as a springboard to share interesting news about progressive candidates on your own Twitter or Facebook timeline. And, of course, remember to follow your favorite candidates on social media.

(SD Anti-Corruption Act Amendment)

Krebs Certifies IM 22 2.0 as Amendment W for 2018 Ballot | Dakota Free Press

Ethics Measure Approved to Be on South Dakota’s 2018 Ballot | U.S. News & World Report

The background story…

South Dakota Fights Back: the Anti-Corruption Amendment

“The South Dakota legislature used emergency powers to overturn the will of the people and repeal the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Act [of 2016]. Now, we’re going back to the ballot in 2018 with the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Amendment. And this time, self-serving politicians won’t be able to repeal it.

The South Dakota Anti-Corruption Amendment fights corruption and puts the voters of South Dakota back in charge. It will ban foreign money in elections, fight corruption, and hold politicians accountable.”
