Who We Are
While the Democrats and Republicans in Annapolis have forgotten about working class Marylanders across the state, we Greens have the ability to reverse this neglect. Whether it be from the 50 plus years of failing Democratic rule in Baltimore or the Republicans' misguidance in Western Maryland and the Eastern Shore, we Greens have a progressive, optimistic agenda that will better the lives of ALL people, and not just Maryland's privileged.
The Maryland Green Party is Maryland's ballot-qualified progressive party. We are committed to the values of ecology, social justice, grassroots democracy, and non-violence. We run candidates at the local, state, and federal levels.

Get Involved With a Campaign
“In our age there is no such thing as keeping out of politics. All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.” - George Orwell
Getting involved with a local or statewide candidates works to serve several purposes:
- Raising party awareness
- Changing the political discussion to issues that matter to masses
- Activating voters to become engaged and show up at the polls
In Maryland, the state, county and local politics is dominated by a single party. Voters have little chance of being heard, or served, when there is no pressure from the outside.
Fredrick Douglass observed that “Power concedes nothing without demand.” Pressure from running third party candidates is one avenue voters have to demand change.
Get involved – help raise the peoples’ voice!

Register to Vote as a Green
“Half of registered voters don't vote. Not voting is not a protest; not voting is submission to those who would run your life for you. A third party vote by a significant number of citizens will be noticed. We need a voter's revolution to reverse the errors of the last fifty years. Protest and make your vote count.” – Silent Partner
60% of Americans do not belong to either major party, and millennials are most dissatisfied and disaffected. There’s a better way … a third way.
Stop voting for what you don’t want. Stop voting for the lesser of evils. This is what got us here. Doing more of the same and expecting different outcomes is, by definition, insanity.
Help the Green Party maintain ballot access to offer voters a third way. While registering is not voting, and you can still vote your conscience or for any candidate of your choice, the key is to have that choice.
Registering Green can help ensure there is an alternative choice!
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." – Margaret Mead
Greens believe change begins at the local level – and that power should be decentralized to those decisions affect most.
Whether you are interested in issues, helping out on a campaign, lobbying elected officials, or seeking
candidates to run for local office, meeting and organizing with those in your area is one of the most
effective ways to drive change from the bottom up!
