Early voting has already started for the MARCH 3, 2020, presidential primary in North Carolina. This is a historic moment for all of us who seek revolution for people and planet and who recognize that there are no real solutions from the corporate parties—for the first time ever, the North Carolina Green Party has a candidate running for president as a Green in the primary race for our party’s nomination!
We encourage all registered Greens to GET OUT AND VOTE for our candidate, HOWIE HAWKINS, to demonstrate your support for independent left politics in this state.
Howie Hawkins is a co-founder of the Green Party of the United States and a longtime Green candidate from New York. From the start, Howie has been committed to independent working-class politics for a democratic, socialist, and ecological society. He was the first candidate to run on a fully developed Green New Deal in 2010, combining an Economic Bill of Rights to jobs, income, housing, health care, and education with 100% clean energy by 2030 in order to reconstruct the economy for economic justice and climate safety. Howie has been a constant organizer in peace, justice, union, and environmental campaigns.
Hawkins is the only Green presidential candidate who has met the requirements to be recognized <[link removed]>by the North Carolina Green Party.
Since Howie is the only candidate on the ballot, why is it important to vote? Because we believe it is critical to show the citizens of North Carolina that our voters feel strongly about exercising their rights as registered Greens. If every registered Green in North Carolina requests a ballot, it will send a clear signal to the leaders of the dominant parties that we are serious about participating, as Greens, in electoral politics in this state, and that we value our ballot-access status. The duopoly party leaders will think twice about passing new laws that disenfranchise Green voters.
