over-the-counter at your election commission or town clerk's office. The
process is fast and easy. All cities and towns allow over-the-counter
voting; contact yours for their hours.
The Political Committee
The Mass Chapter Political Committee identifies candidates who are
expected to best represent the goals of the Sierra Club on environmental
issues and legislation. Our goal is to endorse and support candidates
who can be counted on to preserve the environment. The committee meets
regularly throughout the year.
We have played an increasingly active role in elections in recent
years. This highly active committee welcomes volunteer participation –
particularly during the busy campaign season – to assist with research,
phone calls, and interviews. We are also looking for longer-term
volunteer committee members who have knowledge of Massachusetts politics
and wish to be part of the endorsement process.
PAC donations are
critical to our process, and your donation of any size will help us
achieve our goals. Please send your check to Mass Sierra Club PAC, 10
