2024 Presidential Nomination Process

Each state has its own election procedures.  In New Mexico, the Green Party is a minor party and nominates by convention.  We use the list of candidates published by the GPUS Presidential Candidate Support Committee (PCSC) for apportioning our delegates to the GPUS Presidential Nominating Convention.  There are six people seeking the Green Party nomination for President of the United States.  Some of them are not Greens but use the process that allows unaffiliated candidates or candidates with other parties to seek party lines in various states.  Links to the candidates’ web sites are listed below.  We plan to provide an opportunity to visit with candidates virtually later in the year.

GREENS:  Jorje Zavala*, Randy Toler*, Jill Stein*, Jasmine Sherman*

Non-GREENS:  Daví*, Robert Cooke

*Candidate or campaign has contacted GPNM.

CALL FOR CANDIDATES 2023

Regular Local Elections happen statewide in 2023. These are non-partisan elections like municipal council, school board, and conservancy district. Please contact us if you wish to run for office in 2023. Thank you.

Constitutional Amendment 3

Voters in New Mexico are asked to consider three different constitutional amendments.  The GPNM Green Council had consensus on a soft NO on CA-3.  The overriding concern is that a judge appointed to fill a vacancy in an elected position could continue to serve beyond the next general election.

Greens Getting Media and Creating Their Own

The smaller party and independent candidates often are intentionally denied coverage and opportunities to alert voters to other options and introduce ideas. This frequently occurs when commercial media produce debates. Scattered across the country, however, are opportunities for Green Party candidates–next week, the Green candidate is included in a televised congressional debate in Connecticut.

Sometimes, we create our own media and share it as widely as we can. One of the headline candidates for Greens in 2022 is Matt Hoh, running for U. S. Senate from North Carolina. He has a series of video chats with notable figures, e. g., Margaret Kimberley and Chris Hedges, including tonight’s chat with Jill Stein. Find more videos of Matt making waves on his youtube channel.
