Senate candidate Flowers: Maryland Green primaries do not end today

Green Party Watch, April 26th, 2016:

Maryland Green Party U.S. Senate candidate Margaret Flowers is reminding party members in the state that the Green primary is not over, despite the Democratic and Republican primaries in the state being held today.

Though the Green Party has ballot access in Maryland, the state sponsors only Democratic and Republican primaries. The Green Party is having a by-mail primary through April 30, with in-person voting in Baltimore on May 1. Flowers is hosting a meet and greet at the national Green Party headquarters in Takoma Park on Friday evening from 5:00 to 7:00 to facilitate last-minute balloting.

Though Flowers, and U.S. House candidates Nnabu Eze (Third District), Kamesha Clark (Fourth District), George Gluck (Sixth District), and Myles Hoenig (Seventh District) face no opposition, Greens may also vote “None of the Above” or “No Candidate”. There is a competitive primary in the Eighth District between Elizabeth Croydon, Charles Galloway, and Nancy Wallace.

Flowers is urging Greens to respond to coverage of today’s Maryland primaries by posting comments to “let the media and readers know that there are more than two parties in this state and the election won’t be over until November 8th,” and to post reminders “that Dr. Margaret Flowers is running a serious campaign and is ready to serve as the next U.S. Senator from Maryland. … We can’t rely on the media to cover our message, so we need you to be the media!”
