Ballot Status History: Wisconsin Green Party

1998: The Wisconsin Green Party qualified for statewide ballot status in November 1998.

In Wisconsin, the criteria to qualify for statewide ballot status is for a party to receive at least 1% in any statewide race.

Jeff Peterson received 1.9% and 31,329 votes for Secretary of State. His 1.9% surpassed the 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to qualify for statewide ballot status for four years.



2000: The Wisconsin Green Party retained statewide ballot status in November 2000.

In Wisconsin to retain ballot status, a party must receive at least 1% in a statewide race, in either a gubernatorial or presidential race year. Ballot status lasts for two years. However, Wisconsin has a unique situation in the U.S. - if a party already has statewide ballot status, it can only lose it in a gubernatorial election year, but cannot lose it in a presidential election year.

With all the above being said, Green Presidential candidate Ralph Nader received 3.4% and 94.070 votes. His 3.4% surpassed the 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to retain for statewide ballot status for four years.


2002: The Wisconsin Green Party retained statewide ballot status in November 2002.

Jim Young received 44,111 votes and 2.5% and 44,111 votes for Governor and Paul Aschenbrenner received 6.92% and 114,955 votes for Treasurer. Both totals surpassed the 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to retain its statewide ballot status for four years.


2004: The Wisconsin Green Party failed to extend statewide ballot status in November 2004.

Green presidential candidate David Cobb received 2,661 votes and 0.09% of the votes, less than 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to extend its statewide ballot status for four years.


2006: The Wisconsin Green Party retained statewide ballot status in November 2006.

Nelson Eisman/Leon Todd received 40.709 votes and 1.9% for Governor/Lt. Governor; Michael Laforest received 92,587 votes and 4.5% of the vote for Secretary of State; and Winston Sephus, Jr. received 57,326 votes and 2.8% of the vote for State Treasurer.
All three totals surpassed the 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to retain its statewide ballot status for four years.


2008: The Wisconsin Green Party failed to extend statewide ballot status in November 2008.

Green presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney received 4,216 votes and 0.14% of the votes, less than 1% needed for the Wisconsin Green Party to extend its statewide ballot status for four years.
