Wisconsin Conservation Voters is proud to announce 70 of its endorsed candidates won their seats on boards and councils across the state in the 2022 spring election.

“Despite record out-of-state spending and unprecedented attack ads, our endorsed candidates fought positive, issue-based campaigns,” said Deputy Director Seth Hoffmeister. “Even in the biggest races with the most money, we were able to fight, shift the narrative, and win.”

The extreme threat to democracy and the urgency of addressing climate change demands continued effort and attention. Wisconsin will continue to be a swing state with enormous impact – and in November, the stakes will be only higher.
