Run for Office in 2017!

The 2016 elections are over, and the filing deadline for the 2017 elections in Illinois is coming up fast! If you've ever contemplated running for office, there's no better time than now. A majority of elections in Illinois go uncontested in almost every election cycle. "Elected" officials aren't actually campaigning at all in many towns, villages, counties, and other districts -- and that means they're not answerable to voters, either. Continue reading

Alabama Green Party Statement on the Presidential Election

November 12, 2016 – Despite being the least popular presidential candidate in recent history, Donald Trump has been elected president of the United States. Trump ran a campaign based on astounding levels of xenophobia and racism, calling for a ban on Muslims entering the country and a wall spanning the entire US-Mexico border. This campaign came under fire seemingly once a week with revelations of Trump’s lack of personal integrity and deep misogyny. After he openly boasted about sexually assaulting women, twelve women came forward with stories of being assaulted by Trump. On November 28, Trump will appear in court to face charges of fraud stemming from Trump University. In the face of all of these scandals, which would usually destroy a political career, Trump was able to soundly win the presidency. Continue reading

The 2018 Election Campaign starts NOW!

If we've learned one thing about the recent election campaign, it is that the Republican and Democratic parties don't care about us or our planet. Whomever is elected will no doubt govern in the same distructful manner as their cohorts have for decades. Only the Jill Stein and Baraka Ajamu ticket addressed the issues promoting people, planet, and peace over profit. Together we can change that. We can turn Wisconsin Green! Continue reading

It's time, Mass voters: Go Green in 2016!

There are only three days left to Election Day on November 8th and it has been very exciting. We have seen the Green Party run candidates and get exposure like never before. Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka have not only helped build a national movement with their run for President and Vice President of the United States but also placed the Green Party on the map again. Further, in Massachusetts we have two candidates running for the office of State Representative. They are: Danny Factor for the 14th Middlesex District and Charlene DiCalogero for the 12th Worcester District. With your support the Green Party, and its Massachusetts affiliate, the Green-Rainbow Party will continue to lead the way with strong and viable candidates like these. Continue reading

On Election Day, will I regret not having done more?

Here's something that scares me, as an organizer: the prospect of watching results roll in on Election Day and asking myself, could I have done more? Would we have got a little closer to a key goal, like 5% of the statewide vote, if I'd put in a few extra hours; pushed my limits just a little harder? There's a lot at stake for the future of the Green Party this year in Illinois. Our ability to grow and build in years to come depends on making that 5% threshold on Nov. 8th, so that future Green candidates can compete under the same rules as the Democrat and Republican Party candidates. It would be heartbreaking to come close and fall just barely short. Continue reading

For the first time, Jill Stein is on the ballot in 45 states, with write in status in another three, for voter access in 48 states. Jill is a fearless but reasoned voice for economic fairness, climate change mitigation, equitable treatment for all and a foreign policy based on waging peace, not war.

How to vote in Texas if you don't have a photo ID

The state of Texas has made it easier for more Texans to vote in this election by expanding the types of identification that a voter can present at the polls! If you don't have a photo ID (reminder of the accepted forms of photo ID here), you'll just need to fill out a short form stating the reason why you haven't been able to get one and swearing that you are who you say you are.
