We Need Your Help
The Green Party of Philadelphia is actively signing up new Green registered voters. It’s as simple as filling out a voter registration form, checking “Other” and then writing in “Green Party” in the party designation section of the form. Some forms may already have “Green” as a party designation…if that’s the case, simply check the “Green” box. If you are changing your voter registration from a previous party or independent, you should also check the box on the form for “Change of Party”.
Your completed voter registration form should be sent to your county election office…addresses are listed on the voter registration form.
If you need a form, have any questions, or would like to volunteer for the Green Voter Registration Campaign, please contact:
