Check out our endorsed candidates and information on mail-in and in-person voting
The North Carolina Sierra Club and your local Cape Fear chapter work hard during election season to vet candidates for their dedication to environmental issues. A thorough survey is taken to assess which candidates are most committed to implementing strong environmental regulations and prioritizing issues like climate change, clean water, and offshore drilling. The North Carolina chapter has a comprehensive list of all statewide and locally endorsed candidates. While the Cape Fear group covers a number of counties, we've listed below candidates for the closest districts.
