Coordinating Council Elections - the basics

All WIGP Members in the state may elect up to 8 CC Members at large (regardless of where they’re from).

Elections will be conducted using Ranked Choice Voting, with a binding None of the Above option.

If you’re not already a dues-paying member of the WI Green Party, join up right now!

Review the candidates below, then go to our voting page to vote, or send an email to info@WisconsinGreenParty.org with your vote.

Because we use ranked choice voting, you can list up to 8 choices, with 1 being your first choice and 8 being your last. You can also put "None of the Above" as one of your choices (for example, if you wanted to support only 3 candidates and wanted to vote against others, you can rank your first 3 candidates then put "None of the Above" as your 4th choice).

Coordinating Council Elections - Background

TO VOTE, GO TO OUR VOTING PAGE AND CAST YOUR VOTE BY TUESDAY, JANUARY 7.

The Wisconsin Green Party is committed to grassroots democracy - that means giving our members meaningful ways to participate in decision-making. At our Spring 2018 membership meeting, we revised our bylaws to change how we elect our Coordinating Council.

Generally speaking, at-large representatives ensure that there are seats for members from around the state with something to offer.

The ultimate goal of this process is to give Greens from around Wisconsin the opportunity to get involved with building the party for people, planet and peace over profit.

If you have any questions, please contact Co-Chair Dave Schwab at david.c.schwab [at] gmail [dot] com.

    I have to echo what Dennis wrote. I don’t see a link to a voting page.

    This may be a dumb question on my part, but is this the ballot? If so, I don’t see how to cast votes.
