2018 Progressive Candidates & Ballot Initiatives: A Nationwide List

Dig into a comprehensive list of diverse progressive candidates running in the 2018 elections. Click on a state’s abbreviation or a primary date to quickly link to that specific section

EDITOR’S NOTE:
Though the list is presently being organized into separate pages for better usability, all the links are good — they’ll take you to the candidate information you seek.

May 8 Primaries (Indiana, North Caroline, Ohio, West Virginia)
June 12 Primaries (Maine, Nevada, North Dakota, South Carolina, Virginia)

August 2 and 7 Primaries (Tennessee, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Washington)
August 11 and 14 Primaries (Hawaii, Connecticut, Minnesota, Vermont, Wisconsin)

Making the List

Some candidates are more progressive than others. How did they make the list? A minimal standard was set. Candidates prioritize at least one of the following two topics in his or her platform:

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

Because of the nonpartisan nature of the latter issue, some Republicans 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.)

The list is intended to be a quick information source, as well as a launching pad for further candidate research. 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.

The focus of this list is on progressive candidates who are running for national office. Although I sometimes list candidates running for state office, they are actually outside the scope of this project. Their occasional inclusion is merely a reminder that they exist. In order to discover all the progressive down-ballet candidates in your area, I encourage you to do a Google search for your state or regional chapter of Our Revolution, which makes a point to endorse strong, progressive candidates at the state and community levels.

Using the List

Other criteria may carry more weight for you than healthcare 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.

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.

General Voter Information

The U.S. Congress is crucial to balancing governmental power. Congress holds the power to declare war. Congress writes the federal laws by which we live. Vote in the November 6, 2018 mid-term General Election — to put more progressives in Congress. But before you do that…

Remind your friends and family to vote in your state’s Primary Election — if they want more progressives on the ballot in November.

Many states require party registration long before their state primary election is held. The first 2018 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

Supporting Progressive Candidates

It is difficult for up-and-coming candidates to gain a toehold on the political scene. You may support them in the following ways:

Money – Send financial contributions to your favorite candidates. If you don’t have a progressive running in your own area, consider making a donation to a worthy candidate in another state. A Progressive Congress benefits the entire country.

Word of Mouth – Discuss progressive candidates and the Progressive Movement with your friends. Allow people to make up their own mind, and do…

Share this list as a helpful information resource. The links take people right to the horse’s mouth, where they may evaluate a candidate on their own terms.

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

“The South Dakota legislature used emergency powers to overturn the will of the people and repeal the South Dakota Anti-Corruption Act . 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.”
