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.

While the Cape Fear group covers a number of counties, we've listed below candidates for the closest districts.
