    Please amend to include G. Gail Parker (Green Party) who garnered 9981 or 2.9% of ballots cast in the race for VA’s 1st Congressional House Representative. A monumental effort that bodes well for the party of our futures.


  2. i can’t believe this. i win a fifth term as a Green Party county commissioner in Colorado — i’m the state co-chair, and i don’t even appear in these election results? i ran a partisan race, and so am one of the few partisan-elected greens in the country, and somehow my race gets lost????

      Art – I am about to post a short story about your win. This particular post, titled “Congressional Candidates”, is only reporting the vote results for Congressional candidates. I still mean to post the results of state legislative candidates and local candidates but I haven’t had time. I apologize, lately GPW is a one-person operation and I wish I had a team of writers that were covering every race but I don’t.

      Congratulations on your win! I did read last week that it was expected to be a close race. I am glad you won re-election.


      • thanks, ron. no aspersions meant on the many one-person operations that are the elements of the american green party. thank you so much for the work you do with GPW. it’s just that i have a structural issue with putting so much energy on losing national and state campaigns and so little effort or energy on winning grassroots races. i’ve tried for years to get american greens to “build the party from the bottom up” — and the fact that i win through good governance, not through campaigning only, seems lost on the national party. blessings…

    I’m having a difficult time trying to find out what percentage of the vote that Jill Stein received ths past election day. Can anyone help me ?

  1. […] New York State Green Party Congressional candidates, Ursula Rozum  had the highest total. Many Green Party Congressional candidates in New York, and around the country, received only about 1% of the vote. Ursula Rozum received 7.9% […]

  2. […] the statistical evidence is enough to raise eyebrows.  There were six states in which Greens ran U.S. House and Senate candidates.  In about half, the Senate candidate […]
