Vermont Progressive Party Asks Party Members to Cast a Write-in Vote for Bernie Sanders in Progressive Primary

Ballot Access News

Independent U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is up for re-election in Vermont this year. The Progressive Party has always been closely associated with Sanders, but Sanders has never run for office under its label. The only labels he has run under have been Liberty Union (decades ago) and independent.

Vermont allows write-ins in party primaries. If the Progressive Party primary is used to nominate Sanders this year via write-ins, it seems plausible he would accept the party’s nomination for the first time. The primaries in Vermont are August 14.
