Voting Rights

We need to ensure that all voters have access to the ballot box, including citizens with a felony conviction. We need to end gerrymandering and make sure every vote counts by instituting a proportional representation voting system.

    Gerrymandering in states like mine (Virginia) has virtually eliminated the voice of the people in government affairs. Federal reform of laws against it should be a top priority.

    The Green Party should position ourselves as THE CHAMPION OF VOTERS’ RIGHTS. Republicans are enemies of voting rights, and Democrats are only lukewarm. The Green Party can be vigorous! Our Green values and platforms support the interests of people who have been squeezed out of democracy, so those people will be attracted to what the Green Party stands for. If we ALSO support voting rights, we can attract much more support from those Americans.

    Everyone needs to have a say in our government as we are DEMOCRACY. We are not an oligarchy where only a few has a voice in our government.

    We should push for legislation that will lead to an expansion of the House of Representatives after each census. States shouldn’t lose seats in Congress.

    This must also include voting rights for permanent legal residents of the United States, and for Citizens of US territories and the District of Columbia

    Especially need to push for proportional representation. Ideally, I’d like to see Party Platforms run instead of individuals with the Party designating a person to cast votes and that person being obligated to vote per the Party Platform.
