Make your voice heard on Election Day!
Together, we can get environmental champions and climate justice advocates elected at the local and state level.
HOW THE ENDORSEMENT PROCESS WORKS
To ensure the Sierra Club only endorses the best environmental candidates, our volunteers and staff have developed a multi-step process and criteria for selecting which candidates receive our support. Each of our Congressional endorsements is voted on by two committees made up of volunteers. Typically, our Political Committee volunteers examine each candidate's record and distribute questionnaires to all candidates to fill out. The questionnaire responses are then evaluated, and interviews with candidates are conducted. Our Chapter ExCom then holds a second vote to confirm the endorsement. Throughout our process, volunteers and staff evaluate the environmental and public health records of candidates, their electability and their propensity to be a true champion on our issues.
