 Action Needed

If you are interested and able to help us form a Campus Green Party at the University of Cincinnati, please send your name & contact information to HamiltonCountyGreenParty@gmail.com We need 10 current UC students and a faculty advisor for this group to be established and then they will be allowed to have meetings on Campus and run events at Campus and do related activities. The new group will need to elect its own officers and supply a copy of their bylaws to the University of Cincinnati to become an approved organization.

Thank you for your vote on the November 8, 2016 ballot for our Green Party candidates: Jill Stein for President & Joe DeMare for US Senator from Ohio.

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.

State Law in Ohio: If you voted in the Green Party primary in 2016, you are a member of the Green Party now. If you voted in the Democrat or Republican Primary in 2016, you can participate with Greens but can’t sign a petition or be a central committee member until after the 2018 primary. If you did not vote in the 2016 primary, you can sign petitions for Greens or could be appointed as a central committee member. If you live in Ohio, you can run for office as a Green if you get enough Green and Independent signatures to get on the ballot.

Besides this web page, you can learn more about what the local Green Party is doing, the Hamilton County Green Party by looking at the FaceBook Pages
