The Green Party has run presidential candidates in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008. Our California process for 2012 is for the GPCA General Assembly to recommend names to the California Secretary of State to put on the June 2012 Green presidential primary ballot. The results of the June 2012 primary will guide GPCA Delegates to the GPUS Presidential Nominating Convention according to this process. The Presidential Nomination Convention will be held in Baltimore on July 14, 2012.
Other state parties will choose their delegates to the 2012 Convention via a variety of processes, including primaries, caucuses and state conventions. During this time the GPUS conducts its own process to provide official recognition for candidates seeking the GPUS Presidential nomination. To become officially recognized, one must demonstrate a level of grassroots support within the Green Party and a level of legal and financial organization as a candidate.
