Endorsements

Candidates endorsed by the N.C. Sierra Club in 2024 elections

These candidates are endorsed by the N.C. Sierra Club for the 2024 election cycle. Latest update: March 1.

Our endorsements are non-partisan and informed by our volunteer leaders' research into candidates' positions and, when applicable, performance in office. Please note that we do not make endorsements in every race in any election cycle due to volunteer capacity, lack of supportable candidates and other variables.

Endorsements in federal races, including U.S. House and Senate, are announced by the national Sierra Club.

N.C. House and Senate districts may include all or only part of the counties listed. For specific information on your electoral districts, registration status and more, enter your address at the N.C. State Board of Elections voter search page. The NCSBE site also has full information on the upcoming election.
