Green Party Ballot Access – 2024

We will be gathering signatures to get our Green Party Presidential Candidate on the General Election Ballot in Washington State!

The Green Party of Washington State will hold in-person Nominating Conventions to select electors and to participate in nominating our Green Party Presidential candidate. Our Nominating Conventions will meet in Seattle and Olympia on select dates (TBD), between Thursday, May 4, 2024 and Thursday, July 27, 2024.

Questions?

Do you think democracy would be better served if there were more choices on the ballot? [Yes, of course!]

–> If so, then please sign our petition.

When will the Green Party Presidential nominee be selected?

–> The Green Party nominees for President and Vice President will be selected at the GPUS Presidential Nominating Convention in July 2024.

How can someone attend the Green Party Nominating Convention?

–> To attend a convention and sign a petition, please ask your local Green Party chapter or send us an email (see above).

What does it mean to “support” the nominees?

–> The petition states, “I support with my signature the nominees listed above”. This can be interpreted to mean, “I support listing the Green Party nominees on the ballot”. There is no need for anyone to promise a vote for the candidates when signing the petition.

Can a person register to vote on the same date they sign the petition?

–> YES. You may register to vote online at voteWA.gov or print a voter registration form here: https://www.sos.wa.gov/elections/print-voter-registration-forms.aspx. If you complete the voter registration form on paper, send it by postal mail to your county elections office (address provided on the form).

Can I sign the Green Party nominating petition if I voted in the WA State Presidential Primary (for Major Parties)?

–> YES. To clarify, the reference to signing a ‘nominating petition’ pertains only to other nominating PETITIONS, and not to participation in the Washington State Presidential Primary. If you vote in the presidential primary election, you can still sign this petition. (More information on this topic from 2020.)

Where can I find more information on the Nominating Convention requirements for Washington State?
