Green Party Registration Drive Puts it Back on Oregon Ballot

The Oregon Green Party did not run any statewide candidates in 2010, so that jeopardized its ballot status for future years. Oregon permits a party to remain ballot-qualified either by having polled 1% for a statewide race in the last election, or by keeping or restoring its registration to one-half of 1%. During 2011 the party’s registration had been below that benchmark. However, over the last few months, the party has been conducting a registration drive, and it now meets the one-half of 1% standard, and is safely on the ballot this year. Thanks to Blair Bobier for this news. In Oregon, the Green Party is called the Pacific Green Party.

  1. It is great to see the Green Party back on the ballot in Oregon. I know that this is great news for Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein. Hopefully, OregonGreen Party members will not only work to get out the vote for the national ticket, but will run for office themselves.
