Register to Vote Green

Why Register Green

1. Registering to vote as a Green is a commitment to building an institution to fight for the world you want. Party affiliation doesn’t begin and end with one election.

2. The more people who register Green, the stronger the Green Party is, and the more all parties will take green issues and green voters seriously.

3. Registering Green does not limit your voting options in general elections.

In states with “open” primaries, your registering Green also does not limit your voting options in the primary election. In states with “closed” primaries, however, if you register Green you will only be able to vote in Green primaries. Check with your Board of Elections.

4. The Green Party represents most Americans’ views on issues like health care, a healthy environment, campaign finance reform, corporate power, genetically modified foods, and others.

Ten Key Values

 1. GRASSROOTS DEMOCRACY

Every human being deserves a say in the decisions that affect their lives and not be subject to the will of another. Therefore, we will work to increase public participation at every level of government and to ensure that our public representatives are fully accountable to the people who elect them. We will also work to create new types of political organizations which expand the process of participatory democracy by directly including citizens in the decision-making process.

2. SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUAL OPPORTUNITY

All persons should have the rights and opportunity to benefit equally from the resources afforded us by society and the environment. We must consciously confront in ourselves, our organizations, and society at large, barriers such as racism and class oppression, sexism and homophobia, ageism and disability, which act to deny fair treatment and equal justice under the law.

3. ECOLOGICAL WISDOM

Human societies must operate with the understanding that we are part of nature, not separate from nature.  We must maintain an ecological balance and live within the ecological and resource limits of our communities and our planet. We support a sustainable society which utilizes resources in such a way that future generations will benefit and not suffer from the practices of our generation. To this end we must practice agriculture which replenishes the soil; move to an energy efficient economy; and live in ways that respect the integrity of natural systems.
