2021 General Election Endorsements

The following endorsements were made at the 37th LD Democrats meetings held on May 24, June 14, and September 13, 2021. Note: “No Endorsement” in a race signifies that 60% of voting members specifically chose to make “No Endorsement” in that race. In races where neither candidates nor “No Endorsement” reach the 60% threshold, the LD considers that race “No Consensus Achieved.”
