Welcome Green Party
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
NCGOP Welcomes the Green Party
Celebrating expanded ballot access, voting opportunities in North Carolina
Raleigh, NC — As of today, the State Board of Elections has officially certified the Green Party as a new political party in North Carolina, following the General Assembly's passage of Senate Bill 656. This measure, passed into law after Governor Cooper's veto, provides more ballot access for third parties and unaffiliated candidates.
"The North Carolina Republican Party welcomes the Green Party to North Carolina. Unlike Governor Cooper, who vetoed the measure, Republicans are not scared of electoral competition. We look forward to competing with the Green Party in the marketplace of ideas. I am proud of our Republicans in the General Assembly for providing the opportunity for more candidates and political parties to compete for votes in North Carolina. " - Michele Nix, NCGOP Vice Chairman
