Greening the Granite State. The Sierra Club Environmental Voter Education Campaign (pictured below) was in high gear during the New Hampshire January presidential primary. Focusing on energy, clean air and water, and mercury pollution in conversations with voters, Club staff and volunteers conducted phonebanks and community meetings, bird-dogged the candidates, and recruited 187 volunteers to get the word out at 103 polling places across the state. More than 40,000 "Another New Hampshire Environmental Voter" stickers were distributed at candidate events, local bars and businesses, community meetings, homes, the polls, and on the street. Pictured above at a rally in Concord are Northeast Regional Staff Director Mark Bettinger, Northeast Assistant Regional Rep Cathy Corkery, Appalachian Region Senior Regional Rep Elise Annunziata, and Vermont organizer Kimberly Marion.
