Green Party supporters deserve voting rights too
The Democrats belie their commitment to democracy by repeatedly suing to get the minor party off ballots
Democrats have framed their voting-rights legislation as a "battle for the soul of America." President Biden last week said that "the right to vote and to have that vote counted is democracy's threshold liberty." But what about the right to a real choice?Read more

Freedom To Vote Act — For Capitalist Parties Only
By Howie Hawkins
The Freedom to Vote Act, the pared down voting rights legislation that Democratic Senators unveiled on September 14, must be supported to preempt GOP state laws for partisan gerrymandering, voter suppression, election subversion, and intimidation of voters and election administrators.
Yet this bill also deserves vigorous protest from the Left for its public campaign financing provisions, which are effectively for the two big capitalist parties only.Read more

Replace the electoral college with a ranked-choice national popular vote for president
Democratic principles demand that the president should be elected by the people on the basis of one-person, one-vote. But today the Electoral College will elect the president based on an anachronistic anti-democratic 18th century system where some people’s votes count a lot more than others.
For example, Wyoming has a population of 579,759 and three electoral votes. California has a population of 39,512,223 and 55 electoral votes. Do the math and you find that a vote in Wyoming counts 3.6 times more than a vote in California in the Electoral College.Read more
I couldn't bring myself to vote for Trump or Biden – so I went Green
I'm an American living abroad in the UK, so for this year's election I filled out an absentee ballot. Following the rules to 'fold here' and 'tape there', I was prepped and prepared to fulfil my civic duty and tick the Biden/Harris box.
After all, we've been told countless times that voting for the candidates best poised to beat Donald Trump and Mike Pence is the first step to saving America.Read more
Why I'm Voting Green in 2020
It is important to realize we have had two parties of the millionaires governing the United States since its founding. People have always had to pick between which of the millionaire parties we should choose from when neither put the people's interests first. Some people have found a successful third way that builds people's power.
Those in the Green Party view popular movements and third-party candidates (who cannot win elections in this rigged system) working together to change the direction of the country. We would rather vote for what we want and not get it in an election but use our vote to build a national consensus for the changes we need. That is a better alternative than voting for what we do not want, i.e. "a certifiable, lying, murdering war criminal" and a racist mass incarcerator, and getting it.Read more
Democrats fought to keep the Green Party off some state ballots. What are they scared of?
Angela Walker of the Green Party says it's "very simple: The people who show up and vote Green or Libertarian ... are people who are not going to give their votes to the Democrats or the Republicans."
Kim Brown: So several weeks ago, though it does seem as though it's been at least a few years when Joe Biden announced that Senator Kamala Harris was going to be his running mate for president. A lot of people, particularly democratic liberals were very excited. Oh, there's a black woman on the ticket. And a lot of us leftist progressives were like, there's already a black woman on a ticket of a national party. I'd like for everyone to meet Angela Walker, she is the VP candidate for Howie Hawkins, Green Party ticket for president 2020. And this is a very interesting conversation. First of all, Angela is a fascinating woman and she has a lot to offer a lot to talk about what the Green Party perhaps has to offer voters. And we want to begin the conversation actually talking about the ways to build political power beyond voting.Read more
How Wisconsin voters can still vote Green in 2020
The Wisconsin Elections Commission and the Wisconsin Supreme Court have done their best to silence the Wisconsin Green Party, but we are not submitting to the corporate duopoly. We are still fighting and will continue to fight beyond November for the real change Wisconsinites need: universal healthcare, a clean and healthy eco-system, peace, and justice for real humans - not "corporate persons".
While the WI Democratic Party and the WI Supreme Court succeeded in taking away the ballot line we worked so hard for, Wisconsin will still be able to vote Green. We have become a hidden choice, but you can still help build a powerful grassroots political force adding to over a million courageous people around the nation.Read more
