    2018 Precinct Nominating Conventions

    Want Ballot Access??? SAVE THE DATE! - March 13, 2018

    Remember - Don't vote in the primary!

    If you want to see the Green Party of Texas back on the ballot in 2018, the absolute most important date to mark on your calendar is Tuesday, March 13th, 2018. This is because state election code sets the date for precinct nominating conventions as the second Tuesday in March. As a convention nominating party, the Green Party of Texas is NOT included in primary elections that take place in the Spring. To support Green ballot access, voters must SAVE their primary vote to legally participate in the GPTX nominating conventions that are mandated to occur the week following the primary election.

    GPTX needs 47,182 verified voter signatures submitted to the Texas Secretary of State's office in order to regain ballot access. Signature collection begins with voters signing in to participate in the Green nominating conventions, and can be supplemented by petition drive during the 75 day convention period. So once you participate in the convention, we also ask that you help with the petition drive to assure that we collect sufficient signatures.

    Specific locations will be posted at least 10 days in advance. Local volunteers should advise GPTX of convention locations when they are determined. GPTX will provide ballots, procedural support, and training as the convention period approaches.

    Critical to our success in 2018 will be the development of a strong slate of candidates to deliver Green platform messaging and engage with the public on Green issues. Individuals interested in running as Green candidates can express initial interest by completing our Green Screen Survey. Our candidate development committee will then engage with individuals to facilitate the candidacy process. The candidate application period for the 2018 general election will technically occur from November to December 2017. Individual volunteers interested in working on candidate development should connect with their local party.
