Do You Care About Saving Elephants, Whales, Dolphins and Lions?

Then here is whom to vote for on November 4!

What is it?

  • The Endangered Species Act limits hunting and trading in listed species, but opponents have attempted to "defund" it.

  • The Arctic National Wildlife Preserve in northern Alaska provides habitat for many unique species, but opponents prefer to drill for oil there.

  • Elephant ivory is currently illegal to import or sell, but opponents want to start making exceptions: the Lawful Ivory Protection Act would re-legalize harvesting elephant tusks.

How does it get passed?

It takes 218 Congresspersons to pass endangered species bills in the House of Representatives. It takes 51 Senators in the Senate.

What's happened so far?

The last major House amendment (defunding the Endangered Species Act) to protect endangered species had 224 votes in The House, but never made it to the Senate. Opponents of endangered species only needed 12 House votes on that bill to defeat the next amendment on endangered species.

The last major Senate amendment (drilling the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve) to protect endangered species had 52 votes in The Senate. Opponents of endangered species only need 3 more Senate votes to defeat the next bill on this topic.

What will the candidates running in my area on November 4 do?

You'll see below the names of everyone running, for whom we can predict their vote on this issue. They are organized alphabetically by State in one of the two lists below!

The PRO list are those running in 2014 who have supported endangered species.

The CON list are those running in 2014 who have opposed endangered species.

An interpretation key appears at the bottom.

Get your friends and family and friends on Facebook and Twitter and elsewhere to help elect 218 and 50 and protecting endangered species will pass.

    How to interpret this page

  • The list above includes candidates for Senate and House seats in 2014.
  • All of the above ratings are based on multiple sources of information.
  • The sources of information include legislative votes; bill sponsorships; group ratings; campaign websites; campaign debates; and biographical books.
  • Each information source is rated as supporting the topic, or opposing the topic.
  • The number of opposing sources is subtracted from the number of supporting sources; if the net sum is positive, the candidate counts as "Pro"; if negative, the candidate counts as "Con."
  • Click on the candidate's name to see the list of information sources, and whether we rate is as supporting or opposing.
  • Click on the date of each information source to see a full excerpt and context.

    Key for Pro votes:
  • An aboslute YES vote: 5 or more net supporting information sources, indicating consistent and long-standing support
  • A solid YES vote: 3 or 4 net supporting information sources, indicating substantive support
  • A likely YES vote: 1 or 2 net supporting information sources, indicating some support but not enough for certitude.
  • If a candidate has a net zero supporting information sources (or no information sources), that candidate is not listed above at all.

    Key for Con votes:
  • An absolute NO vote: 5 or more net opposinginformation sources, indicating consistent and long-standing opposition
  • A solid NO vote: 3 or 4 net opposing information sources, indicating substantive opposition
  • A likely NO vote: 1 or 2 net opposing information sources, indicating some opposition but not enough for certitude.


  • The above list is not fully inclusive; many House challengers are not included, but all House incumbents are eligibla.
  • All major-party Senate candidates (and incumbents) are eligible; and most Senate challengers are, too.
  • Some of the candidates listed above lost in the primary, but are still listed.
