Maryland Green Party U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers will meet voters at the Green Party of the United States national headquarters in Takoma Park, Maryland, on Friday evening from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. to urge party members to vote in the Maryland Green Party’s primary. Maryland Greens can vote by mail through Saturday, April 30, or in person in Baltimore on Sunday, May 1. (Ballots will be available at the Flowers event.)
Though Flowers and most of the Green candidates for U.S. House are unopposed in their primary races, voters will also have the option to select “None of the Above” or to say that the party should run no candidate. There is a competitive primary in the Eighth District between Elizabeth Croydon, Charles Galloway, and Nancy Wallace. There is also a competitive Green primary for Baltimore mayor between Joshua Harris, David Marriott, and Emanuel McCray.
Flowers and Harris appeared on the Real News Network as part of their coverage of the Maryland Democratic and Republican primaries Tuesday evening.
Maryland Green Party U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers is reminding party members in the state that the Green primary is not over, despite the Democratic and Republican primaries in the state being held today.
Though the Green Party has ballot access in Maryland, the state sponsors only Democratic and Republican primaries. The Green Party is having a by-mail primary through April 30, with in-person voting in Baltimore on May 1. Flowers is hosting a meet and greet at the national Green Party headquarters in Takoma Park on Friday evening from 5:00 to 7:00 to facilitate last-minute balloting.
Flowers is urging Greens to respond to coverage of today’s Maryland primaries by posting comments to “let the media and readers know that there are more than two parties in this state and the election won’t be over until November 8th,” and to post reminders “that Dr. Margaret Flowers is running a serious campaign and is ready to serve as the next U.S. Senator from Maryland. … We can’t rely on the media to cover our message, so we need you to be the media!”
Elizabeth Croydon, who is running for the Green Party U.S. House nomination in Maryland’s Eighth District, took part in the #Reschedule420 Emergency National Mobilization to Deschedule Cannabis demonstration outside the White House last Saturday.
Charles “Teddy” Galloway III and Nancy Wallace are also seeking the Green nomination in the by-mail primary.
