Our Endorsements

for Pro-Environment Candidates

Your vote on Election Day is one of the most important things you can do for the environment. We take the guesswork out of knowing which candidates will protect your air, water, and community’s health. 

How We Craft Our Endorsements

Conservation PAC staff and volunteer committee members carefully evaluate candidates for state office. Our evaluation criteria includes a candidate’s responses to our written questionnaire, interviews, their environmental voting record, demonstrated leadership on environmental issues, and their commitment to improving environmental protections in North Carolina.

Our nonpartisan strategy focuses on re-electing leaders who have a clear record of support, finding new champions in open seats, and replacing anti-environmental incumbents with conservation champions. Our endorsements and resources are targeted on races where our efforts can have the greatest impact on electoral or policy outcomes.

Because NCLCV advocates for sound environmental policies at the state legislature, we do not make endorsements in local or federal races. We work closely with our colleagues at the national League of Conservation Voters to help inform their endorsements of North Carolina’s congressional candidates. 

We encourage you to ask all your candidates — whether local, federal, or those candidates not endorsed by CPAC — where they stand on environmental issues.
