 Action Needed

Most of the May 3, 2022 Primary Election is for the members of the dominate two political parties to choose their candidates for the November 2022 Election and for them to choose their Central Committee members. A few precincts in Hamilton County, Ohio will have Issues Only ballots. You can look at the Hamilton County Board of Elections link (in Green print) or just look at the list of what is on the ballot to see if there is anything for an Ohio Green Party member to vote for in the 2022 Ohio Primary Elections.

Summary of how to “join” the Ohio Green Party

How to join up and get involved in the Green Party in Ohio depends on where you live in Ohio. If you live in a county with an official Green Party you can join them at anytime. If you live in an area that is near an organized Green Party you could join in activities with the organized county or get their help to organize in your own County. All of the Ohio County Green Parties welcome folks who are not official Green Party members, but there are certain rules as to how this works from a legal point-of-view.

More specific information is contained in this link How to become an official member of Ohio Green Party.

The Hamilton County Green Party will be interviewing interested persons who want to run for office as a Green in our local area. These candidates must feel comfortable running with the Green Party Platform and must NOT be wanting to seek or accept the endorsement of either of the major parties.
