2016 Candidate Info Webpage
This web page has been produced by the Elections Division of the Office of the Secretary of State as directed by the Legislature in 17 V.S.A. § 2906.
A key element of democracy is the informed participation of potential voters. This webpage will provide you with a non-partisan presentation of candidates for federal and statewide offices who have submitted information to our office.
All candidate information was prepared and submitted to us by the candidates. To ensure fairness, our office developed specifications for the presentation. Each candidate was invited by a letter to submit a photograph, a logo, a biographical sketch not to exceed 100 words, and position statements on up to five issues of the candidate’s choice not to exceed a total of 550 words. The content has not been edited or changed by our office. However, we have formatted each presentation to provide uniformity of type and page layout.
This web page will be updated with candidate submissions on a rolling basis as they are received. All candidates for federal and statewide office have been invited to participate. If the link below for a candidate is inactive, they have not made a submission.
