North Carolina Green Party Gains Ballot Access!

UPDATE: As of March 27, 2018, the North Carolina Green Party (NCGP) is now a ballot-qualified party. That means we have ballot access—we’ll be able to run Greens as Greens for all levels of office, and North Carolina voters can now register to vote as Greens.


The North Carolina Green Party is a membership organization. Even though voters may now register to vote Green, if you want to become a MEMBER of the North Carolina Green Party, we have specific requirements for that, including modest annual dues. Residents of North Carolina who experience state disenfranchisement and are unable to register to vote may also become members of the NCGP. For more information and to become a MEMBER of the NCGP, visit our Membership Page.

The State Board of Elections has printed new voter registration forms with the "Green Party" option on them. Voters may register to vote Green by downloading a voter registration form from the State Board of Elections website here. In the form's Political Party Affiliation section, mark the "Green Party" checkbox.

If you have an old form that does not list "Green Party" as an option, you can still register Green with that form—simply check the "Other" box in the Political Party Affiliation section and then write in the word "Green."

Thanks for all of our members' and supporters' help getting the NCGP on the ballot! 

You can lend a hand right now in TWO critical ways:


1. Help us raise $5,000 for outreach.

The Green Party of the United States has given us a $5,000 grant to help with our ballot efforts and to educate and outreach about it once we achieve a ballot line. Let's double our impact and raise another $5,000! With these funds, we'll be able to spread the word, hire organizers, and help cover candidate filing fees. We just made history as the first progressive/left party to get on the ballot in North Carolina since the 1980s. Please donate now to help ensure we get our message out to thousands of people.

2. Join the party!

The North Carolina Green Party (NCGP) is one of the few dues-paying Green Parties in the United States. We’re building a membership-based party funded by Greens and run by Greens, which means our members have an equal voice and an equal say in this party—and when we all have a voice and a stake, it keeps corporate influence and elite, big-money candidates out. Membership is open to North Carolina residents age fourteen years of age or older who meet certain criteria: Currently, those who are eligible to register to vote must be registered as Unaffiliated (not Democrat, Republican, or Libertarian) or become registered as Greens ASAP. Those who are not eligible to register to vote due to various state disenfranchisement—such as felony record or noncitizenship status—may still become NCGP members. Contact our party secretary, Tommie James, at [email protected] if you feel you are not eligible to vote due to state disenfranchisement. Otherwise, click below to sign up. Our dues are modest and designed to be affordable to all people.
