The purpose of the precinct conventions is to allow voters to vote for Green Party candidates up for nomination for the General Election Ballot (like a primary), and to elect delegates to the county convention, to be held on March 12, 2016.
To participate in the Precinct Convention(s), you should bring your voter registration card and some ID acceptable for voting purposes. You must not have voted in any other political party primary or convention. Your voter registration card will be marked “Green Party” or you get an affiliation certificate with this Affirmation of Affiliation: “I affirm that I have not voted in a primary election or participated in a convention of another party during the voting year. I hereby affiliate myself with the Green Party of Texas.”
Precinct convention participants may vote only for candidates who will appear on the November general election ballot for their precinct (shown on voter registration card).
Except for U.S. President, each of the positions on on the Green Party precinct convention ballot has only one candidate who applied . Each position has a “none of the above” choice, besides the candidate(s). See 2016_candidate_applicants for the list of Green Party candidates
The participants will also select one or more delegates to the county convention. The delegate will be bound by the voting results at the precinct convention.
