Ballot Status History: D.C. Statehood Green Party

1998: The D.C. Green Party qualified for ballot status in November 1998.

In 1998, the criteria for ballot status in the District of Columbia was to receive at least 7,500 votes in any district-wide race.

Mike Livingston received 9,479 votes and 8.4% for U.S. House of Representatives 'Shadow' (i.e. non-voting) Representative.
Livingston's 9,479 votes surpassed the 7,500 required to qualify the D.C. Green Party for the ballot.


1999: In October 1999, the D.C. Green Party merged with the D.C. Statehood Party, becoming the D.C. Statehood Green Party. Registered members of the D.C. Statehood Party automatically became members of the D.C. Statehood Green Party.

The D.C. Green Party officially dissolved as part of this process, as part of a resolution filed by the D.C. Green Party and approved by the D.C. Board of Elections and Ethics on November 3rd, 1999. The 139 voter registrations at that point in the D.C. Green Party became void as well.


2000: The D.C. Statehood Green Party retained ballot status in November 2000.

In 2000, District of Columbia law was changed such that a Shadow Congressional candidacy could no longer count towards achieving ballot status.

Ralph Nader received 10,576 votes for president. His 10,576 votes surpassed the 7,500 required for the D.C. Statehood Green Party to retain its ballot status.


2002: The D.C. Statehood Green Party retained ballot status in November 2002.

Debby Hanrahan received 13,581 votes and 10.9% for City Council, Council Chair and Michele Tingling-Clemmons received 13,828 votes and 7.2% for City Council, at-large member. Both vote totals surpassed the 7,500 required for the Statehood Green Party to retain its ballot status.


2004: The D.C. Statehood Green Party retained ballot status in November 2004.

Laurent Ross received 23,322 and 4.5% for at-large member on the City Council. His 23,322 votes surpassed the 7,500 required for the D.C. Statehood Green Party to retain its ballot status.


2010: The D.C. Statehood Green Party retained ballot status in November 2010.

Ann Wilcox received 12,055 votes (10.20%) for DC Council Chair and David Schwartzman received11.799 votes (6.78%) for DC Council At-Large.
Both vote totals surpassed the 7,500 required for the Statehood Green Party to retain its ballot status.
