With public lands issues taking center stage in numerous races across the country, the votes of sportsmen and women represent an increasingly powerful force. Your vote is the single most powerful way to make sure your voice is heard – in Washington, D.C. and in state capitals across the country. Like you, our members are hungry for information about the values of those who are seeking our votes. And as for the candidates themselves? We’re putting them on notice: We hunt, and we fish and we Vote Public Lands and Waters.

 

To that end, we’ve worked in several states to release candidate questionnaires highlighting the issues central to our American hunting and fishing heritage. Find out if your chapter released a questionnaire below, sign the pledge to Vote Public Lands and Waters, and rep the movement with our 2020 campaign t-shirts and stickers! This is your chance to help elevate our public lands, waters and wildlife as fundamental issues in the 2020 election, so act now!

 


To help inform and empower November voters, we’re releasing a series of state-based questionnaires that highlight the stances taken by candidates running for elected office on issues affecting our natural resources. If you live in one of these states, read through the answers from each of your candidates to find out where they stand on the issues that matter to public lands hunters and anglers. Here are the states with candidate questionnaires:

If no candidate questionnaire exists for your state, you can still find out where your candidate stands on these issues by contacting them directly! Here is a list of questions you can ask as you consider your vote. LINK

Backcountry Hunters & Anglers is a 501(c)3 organization and does not endorse any candidate. We advocate for the primacy of public lands and waters as an election issue and encourage our members to prioritize those issues with their votes. In order for a state to release a candidate questionnaire, all eligible candidates must participate. All candidates are given the same questions and no preference is given to any particular candidate.
