State and Local Candidates

EMILY’s List recruits, trains and supports pro-choice Democratic women candidates at every level of the ballot. By helping to elect these women to office in 2018, we’re not only building a farm team, but we’re also putting strong women in charge of decisions that affect women and families every day — from the legislators who write laws, the attorneys general who defend and enforce them, and the secretaries of state who ensure access to the ballot.

Here are the candidates who are running strong campaigns at the state and local level in 2018 and have earned the EMILY's List endorsement:
