State election code sets the date for district nominating conventions as the third Saturday in March. GPTX will hold consolidated district nominating conventions via teleconference between 1-3pm on the regular SEC teleconference number. A schedule will be posted & call information will be circulated to all county delegates.
The GPTX state nominating convention will take place on April 14, 2018, location TBA. To be a voting delegate you must be elected through the county nominating conventions. The nominating conventions are when the party elects delegates and votes to grant the Green Party nomination to candidates so that they may appear on the general election ballot in November if GPTX successfully achieves ballot access. The delegates will also consider any resolutions brought up from the counties.
The GPTX state meeting will take place concurrently, when delegates will elect party officers & conduct other party business. If you are interested in running for one of the party officer positions, please inform the state co-chairs so that you can be listed in the agenda packet. However, nominations will be accepted at the meeting. Party-building & candidate support workshops are also being planned.
The submission deadline for platform amendments and resolutions to be considered at the state convention & meeting is February 28, 2018. Bylaw amendments may only be submitted in odd-numbered years. The deadline for county parties to submit delegate lists to the state convention & meeting will be March 20, 2018.
