Frequently Asked Questions
And some answers to go along with them...
There are many ways you can get involved.
The first thing we need to do is get ballot access. If you have a Facebook page, please join us on our ballot access page, https://www.facebook.com/groups/626209550889317/, to download petition forms to collect signatures. You can also connect with events and locations where the petition will be. If you just want to sign, you can connect with someone near you who has the petition. If you are not on FB please let us know and we will email you forms or locations.
Beyond the petition, you can periodically check here, NVGreenParty.org, to keep up with what’s going on locally.
We are in the process of re-birthing the Nevada Green Party so have patience while we improve our website and grow our organization. With that being said there will be many opportunities to get involved. If you have the passion, we have a place for you.
In the meantime, be the media. Tell everyone you know what the Green Party is and who Jill Stein is. Help other states get on the ballot. Be a walking advertisement with t-shirts and bumper magnets. Register to vote.
We are collecting signatures to get the Green Party and Jill Stein on the ballot for the November election.
We were required to have about 5,400 signatures by June 3rd to get the Green Party on the ballot. We collected 8,600 statewide but unfortunately many of those signatures were thrown out for various reasons. We were short 647.
We are now in the process of appealing this decision with the Secretary of State. Our attorneys have advised us to at least get the minimum required to make our case stronger if we need to file a lawsuit.
To achieve this goal, we are getting 1,000 more signatures. There is no hard deadline for this. However, as soon as possible is preferred so we can move forward and not miss any further election deadlines.
No, you only need to be a registered voter. You will not change your party by signing either. When you sign you will not be giving any contact information and the Green Party will not use any of this information except to turn directly into the registrar’s office.
Please make sure your voter registration is up to date as we learned that you will be purged from the system if you have not voted in two election cycles and the registrar was unable to contact you by mail for any reason (like you moved).
The best place to find a petition if you have a FB account is join the Nevada Green Party Ballot Access page https://www.facebook.com/groups/626209550889317/
On the site you can see events or locations where someone will have a petition or you can tell everyone where your work or home location is and someone near you can plan to connect with you.
If you have any trouble finding a petition, contact your local petition organizer. Julia Hammett in Reno/Northern Nevada, Autumn Zemke in Carson City, and Kim Borghese in Las Vegas/Southern Nevada.
If you are not on Facebook, you can send a message through our website www.nvgreenparty.org contacts and we will help you find a petition.
Go to the Nevada Secretary of State's Voter Registration Information page https://nvsos.gov/sosvoterservices/Registration/step1.aspx
In the line that asks for your party affiliation there is a drop down box where you can choose Green.
Paper registration forms can be found at your local registrar’s office or the DMV. If you are using paper, you will write in your party affiliation. Note that the internet is immediate whereas paper may take a while depending how long it takes to get to the registration office and to be seen by a registrar. If you have done it via paper, check your registration online weekly and verify that you have been registered and that all your information is correct. By both methods you should receive a new voter registration card in the mail.
