Green Party 2020 Presidential Nomination Process
Every four years, the Green Party of the United States nominates its presidential and vice-presidential candidates at its quadrennial Presidential Nominating Convention. In 2016 the convention was held in Houston, Texas, August 4-7.
The Green Party has run presidential candidates in 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008 and 2012. This year these candidates are all seeking the GPUS Nomination.
Our process for 2016 has included:
A Presidential Outreach and Exploratory Candidate Letter Questionnaire to candidates seeking our nomination. Responses to it will be published on this committee page.
Official recognition as a candidate seeking the GPUS Presidential nomination. Two candidates have currently received GPUS recognition – Jill Stein and William Kreml. To become officially recognized as a candidate seeking the GPUS Presidential nomination for President, one must demonstrate a level of grassroots support within the Green Party and a level of legal and financial organization by satisfying these criteria, including gaining signatures of support from at least 100 Green Party members on this signature form.
Decision-making by state parties regarding which presidential candidates will be placed on their primary election ballot, in states where there are Green Party primaries in 2016. Dates will be found on this calendar.
Individual state parties choosing delegates to the 2016 Green Party Presidential Convention via a variety of processes, including primaries, caucuses and state conventions, followed by
