How the Sierra Club’s Endorsement Process Works

The Sierra Club leverages the power of our networks of volunteers and members to help elect environmental candidates. The Sierra Club sees the importance of having environmental champions at all levels of elected office.  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 endorsements are voted on by two committees made up of volunteers.  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.  Throughout our process, volunteers evaluate the environmental and public health records of candidates, their electability and their propensity to be a true champion on our issues.
