In September 2018, the ACLU of Vermont sent each of the candidates for Vermont governor a 5-question survey, inviting them to state their personal views on a range of criminal justice issues ahead of this year’s elections.

We have received the candidates' responses and posted them word-for-word at the links below. We have noted where no response was received, or where candidates did not provide their own individual responses to each of the questions asked.
