Run For Office as a Green Party Candidate

The Baltimore City Green Party is seeking candidates for upcoming elections. Running as a Green Party candidate is an opportunity to advance Green values and solutions and to give voters an opportunity to have a choice outside of the one-party system here in Baltimore.

We encourage candidates to build their own campaign strategy and their own team, but we will connect you with volunteers and provide some campaign training opportunities.

Greens have a variety of reasons to run for office. Some run to win, others run to raise important issues. Some run to organize local parties, and others run simply to provide voters with a choice. Whatever your reason for running for office, it is an exciting opportunity to:

  • Meet your neighbors.
  • Connect with the issues in your community.
  • Advocate for the change you would like to see.
