The Candidate Principles is supported by over 70 organizations across the nation. In 2023, the program merged with the Safe and Secure Elections Pledge, a program of the nonpartisan Team Democracy. The two programs share the goal of securing commitments from candidates to conduct their campaigns ethically and in the spirt of a peaceful transfer of power. The two programs now operate jointly under the Candidate Principles. Together they have secured the support of over 3,000 candidates, public officials, and voters in all 50 states.
