Green Party of TN received great news recently (3/17) when, in our 3rd win in the courts, Chief District Judge William J. Haynes, Jr. ruled in the Green Party’s favor in our lawsuit Green Party of TN vs Hargett. On one claim, the judge ruled the TN law saying minor parties must receive 5% of the vote in particular races in one election cycle to retain ballot access, when the major political parties are allowed 2 election cycles, is unconstitutional. This gives us a ballot line in 2014.
To keep the ballot line for the next presidential year, 2016, the party must receive at least 5% of the vote in either the U.S. Senate race against Alexander, or the Governor’s race against Haslam.
We will be announcing our candidates soon. Please support our Green candidates. With your help we can reach our 5% goal and enter the 2016 election cycle stronger than ever. The process takes time and the Green Party of Tennessee is in it for the long run.
