A Democratic Sierra Club Demands Grassroots Participation
The annual election for Sierra Club’s Board of Directors is now underway.
Those eligible to vote in the national Sierra Club election will receive ballots in early March by mail (or digitally if you chose the electronic delivery option). This will include information on the candidates and where you can find additional information on Sierra Club’s election website.
Your participation is critical for a strong Sierra Club.
The Sierra Club is a democratically structured organization at all levels. Sierra Club requires the regular flow of views on policy and priorities from its grassroots membership in order to function well. Yearly participation in elections at all Sierra Club levels is a major membership obligation.
Our grassroots structure is strengthened when participation is high and provides an opportunity for members from all walks of life to have a say in what the future of the Sierra Club looks like
How can you learn about the candidates? Members frequently state that they don’t know the candidates and find it difficult to vote without learning more.
Each candidate has provided a written statement about themselves and their views on the official election ballot. You can learn more by asking questions of your group and chapter leadership and other experienced members you know. You can also visit the Sierra Club’s election website for additional information, including campaign videos from each candidate: http://www.sierraclub.org/board/election
Voting Online is Quick and Easy!
Even if you receive your election materials in the mail, we encourage you to use the user-friendly Internet voting site to save time and postage. If sending via ground mail, your ballots must be received no later than April 22, 2020 (Sierra Club Election Day).
