The Oregon League of Conservation Voters released its preliminary endorsements March 11 on selected state and county races in the May primary. More endorsements from the OLCV are expected. OLCV bases its endorsements on questionnaires sent to candidates and also on candidates' voting records on contested environmental issues.
In state legislative races, OLCV has endorsed Reps. Paul Holvey, Phil Barnhart, John Lively, Nancy Nathanson and Val Hoyle.
In Lane County Commission races, OLCV has endorsed Pete Sorenson and Rob Handy.
In city of Eugene races, OLCV has endorsed Mayor Kitty Piercy and Councilors Betty Taylor and Andrea Oriz.

According to the website:
"OLCV's endorsement is critical information voters can use to decide which candidates to trust. The vast majority of voters simply don’t have time do in-depth research on the candidates — OLCV does that important work for you."
"OLCV has a solid track record of winning close races, whether we’re working to elect candidates to vacant seats or to replace an anti-environment incumbent with pro-environment candidates."
