This page is for members of the North Carolina Green Party to use in evaluating the 2024 Presidential candidates vying for the nomination at the upcoming Green Party US nominating convention (date and location TBD). Statements below were provided by the candidates' campaigns. The North Carolina Green Party is not endorsing any of these candidates at this time. A process for polling our members on their preferences will be implemented after our Spring Gathering. That process will probably take place in June. In the meantime, we encourage you to explore the candidates’ websites and social media or contact the candidates with questions.
Jasmine Sherman (North Carolina)
This campaign diverges from the ordinary, presenting Jasmine as a candidate with a non-conventional background, drawing on direct engagement with at-risk communities, bringing a street-level perspective to the potential role in the Oval Office. At the heart of Jasmine's campaign lies a resolute commitment to implementing tangible policy changes designed to benefit all citizens.
Key policy priorities include reallocating resources for police funding, advancing clean energy distribution, championing gender and racial justice, advocating for a universal basic income, ensuring comprehensive healthcare access with prescription coverage, spearheading prison reform, evaluating the role of private, for-profit prisons, initiating a comprehensive overhaul of the educational system, ensuring housing for all, addressing disability issues through informed education, and supporting the Convention on the Rights of the Child.
Jasmine asserts that these initiatives are imperative steps toward enhancing the overall quality of life for all citizens. With passion, experience, and an unwavering dedication to inclusivity, Jasmine Sherman confidently aspires to lead the nation toward a future marked by greater equity and prosperity, guided by a common-sense approach to policy implementation.

Jill Stein (Maine)
The political system is broken. The two Wall Street parties are bought and paid for. Both are abandoning working people, worsening the climate crisis, undermining democracy, and squandering trillions on the endless war machine while tens of millions of Americans lack basic needs like housing, food and healthcare.
Over 60% of us now say the two-party system has failed us and we need a party that serves the people. I’m running for President to offer that choice for the people: a pro-worker, anti-war, climate action campaign on the ballot nationwide. Political insiders smear voters who want better choices. But without freedom of choice in elections, there is no democracy. So forget the elites who tell you to ignore your struggle and to keep voting for the politicians who caused it. Change won't come from them; it has to come from the people.
If we come together, we can create an economy that works for all of us with living-wage jobs, healthcare, housing, food, and debt-free education as human rights.
We can create a Green New Deal with millions of jobs to fight climate collapse and protect Mother Earth.
We can end endless war and launch a new foreign policy based on diplomacy and international law.
We can revive our democracy and ensure our rights, freedoms, and justice for all.
We have the power - and we can use it in 2024 to start building an America and a world that works for all of us.

The Green Party US has an excellent Ballot Access page that displays a map of all the States, their ballot access status, requirements and ways in which we can all help each other achieve that ballot line. We will keep updating the map as more states achieve a Green ballot line.
