The Green Party of the United States was recognized by the FEC in 2001 as a national party after U.S. Greens spent the 1980s and 1990s building on the local and state level. Today, at least 144 Greens in 20 states hold elected office across the nation.
The Green Party of the United States has 43 affiliated state party members, plus the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands, and five organized caucuses. Different states have varying laws and party rules that define membership. In the 31 states (+ DC) that have partisan registration, 22 (+ DC) allow for, and report, Green Party registration numbers. As of July 2023, there were239,474 registered Greens in these states.
Many thousands more identify themselves as Green in states that don’t have voter registration by party membership. The Green Party currently has ballot lines in 17 states plus the District of Columbia. In the 2016 general election, the Green Party had ballot lines in 44 states plus DC. Ballot access in 2020 was greatly impacted by COVID restrictions and partisan actions raising ballot access requirements for third parties.
Internationally, Green Parties are in more than 100 countries, reflecting a commitment to heal our planet that transcends national identities and political boundaries.
Greens have run for office since the first Green Parties were organized in 1972, starting with Australia, New Zealand and England. Since then, Greens have been elected to thousands of seats around the globe in local, regional, national and international parliaments. On the national level, Greens currently hold over 400 seats around the globe, including seats in European and Nordic nations and in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chad, Chile, Colombia, Congo, México and New Zealand as of 2021. This number includes 72 people from the Greens/European Free Alliance Group holding seats in the European Parliament from 17 countries and 4 regions. In 2017, Katrín Jakobsdóttir of the Left-Green Movement was elected as Prime Minister of Iceland.
Most Greens elected at the regional, national or international level have been elected in multi-seat electorates (districts/constituencies/ridings) through systems of proportional representation. However Greens have increasingly been winning direct election in single seat electorates, including Elizabeth May to the Canadian House of Commons and Caroline Lucas to the British House of Commons. Mike Schreiner leader of the Green Party of Ontario, became the first Green MPP ever elected to the provincial legislature in Ontario, winning 45% of the vote. In 2019, Paul Manly became the second Green elected to the Canadian House of Commons. His term ended in 2021.

The Four Pillars of the Green Party of the United States
Our country's long wars and worldwide military presence are immoral and unsustainable. Our military budget must be cut dramatically.
The human cost of climate change is too high. We need to get off fossil fuels and on to renewable energy.
Falling wages and rising bills are hitting most of us, and the most vulnerable are hit the hardest. We demand a living wage and a real safety net.
We demand public financing of elections, open debates, and more representative voting systems.
