Who we elect matters.

Conservation Voters for Idaho is the only conservation organization in Idaho that directly influences the outcome of elections. We work tirelessly to ensure Idahoans can depend on their elected officials to advance conservation policy while in office.

Each year, CVI selects, endorses, and works to elect the best conservation candidates who will protect Idaho's clean air and water, open space, thriving democracy, and healthy communities.
