Which Policies Will Your State's Attorney Support?

The ACLU of Vermont’s “Your Vote, Your Prosecutor" campaign seeks to increase public understanding of the powerful role of Vermont’s elected prosecutors, known as state's attorneys. In June, the ACLU invited each state's attorney candidate to answer fifteen questions about their positions on criminal justice issues, including police misconduct, the opioid crisis, and racial disparities in Vermont’s criminal legal system. Check to see whether candidates in your county submitted a response by browsing the table below.

There are contested primaries in Addison, Chittenden & Washington County. We've put candidates responses side by side to help you compare answers to key questions:

This year, Vermont voters will have a choice between forward-thinking, data-driven, effective reforms that reflect our values, and the harmful, counter-productive policies that have failed our communities for too long. We urge you to ask the candidates which of these approaches they favor. Then, vote your values.
