At its convention on Saturday, the Pacific Green Party, the Oregon state Green Party organization, awarded six presidential convention delegates to Jill Stein and one to Sedinam Kinamo Christin Moyowasifza-Curry. Stein now has 120 total delegates, Bill Kreml 11, Moyowasifza-Curry seven, Kent Mesplay four, and Darryl Cherney two. A candidate needs 202 delegates to win the nomination.
Oregon’s Eugene Register-Guard reports that the Pacific Green Party and three other parties “have joined together to slam the Oregon Secretary of State Jeanne Atkins, a longtime Democrat, alleging bias and lack of transparency in a recent notice Atkins’ agency sent to non-affiliated Oregon voters about party registration.”
Pacific Green Party representative Alan Zundel said, “This is another example of how the system is stacked against third parties, whether intentional or not. The notice prominently displayed how to register with a major party while registering with a minor party was left to a small, general aside at the bottom of the page.”
The Constitution Party, Independent Party, and Progressive Party joined in the protest.
