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 2019 and 2020, 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 to the attorneys general who defend and enforce them to the secretaries of state who ensure access to the ballot.
