Clearly, growing the Green Party means running more candidates and winning more elections. You’re on board. But how do you pick a race to run in? Once you’ve identified a seat to run for, how do you structure your campaign? What paperwork needs to be filed? How much time are we talking here? Not up for running? What are the other roles you might play in a campaign?
