This poll uses Ranked Choice Voting and includes all of the presidential candidates invited to our Meet and Greet event last Saturday, January 20 in Worcester. We are including all registered Green-Rainbow voters we can afford to reach out to in this poll. If we have missed anyone, we asked that you refer them to [email protected] so we can include them. We look forward to building the alternative to this destructive duopoly; building the Green alternative for people, planet, and peace. Our goal is to be the voice of the Massachusetts people.
Massachusetts Elections rules require that, in order to get a presidential candidate on the November ballot, the Green-Rainbow Party (GRP) must get 10,000 signatures of Massachusetts registered voters submitted to towns by July 30, 2024 and certified by those towns. To assure 10,000 are certified, the party needs about 20,000 raw signatures submitted to towns by July 30th. This law applies to us since GRP got less than 3% in all 2022 statewide races, and has less than 1% of registered voters registered as Green-Rainbow voters.
But our national Green Party of the US will not decide on the national presidential and vice presidential nominees until the Annual National Meeting July 11-14. Waiting until then would leave Massachusetts just sixteen days to collect enough signatures – not enough time.
So here in Massachusetts, the Green-Rainbow Party has decided to choose, as best we can, a presidential candidate early enough to allow sufficient signature gathering. To do that, we are conducting this poll of all Green-Rainbow registered voters. Our state committee will then place the best presidential and vice-presidential candidates’ names on the nomination petitions. These will be obtained right after our February 17th state committee meeting. If by chance the GPUS ANM chooses different candidate as nominees, GRP will start a write-in campaign for those nominees.
