As you are likely aware, 2020 is an election year for the Green Party of Manitoba. We are electing our Leader and Elected Officers who will oversee the party for the next two years. If you are an active member of the GPM, you are eligible to vote. Below you will find some useful information about the election.
How do I vote in the GPM elections?

Who/what am I voting for?
There are several different questions on the ballot this year, which fall into three categories: Leadership Contest, Elected Officers, and Motions.
The first question on the ballot is the Leadership Contest. There are three options for this question: James Beddome, Andrea Shalay, and None of the Above. To vote, you will rank all three options from 1-3 in order of your preference. To read about each candidate and their vision, visit greenparty.mb.ca/news/leadership-2020.
We recently also held a question-and-answer forum with the leadership contestants. If you missed the forum or would like to watch it again, you can do so at greenparty.mb.ca/news/2020-leadership-forum.
Next, you will vote for the 10 Elected Officer positions. This year, there is only one person seeking each position. Your options will be Yes or No to either approve or disapprove of each nominee. You can read the bios of each nominee at greenparty.mb.ca/news/agm-2020-meet-council/.
There are also several motions up for approval on this year’s ballot. These motions are amendments to either the Constitution or By-Laws of the GPM. You can read each of the proposed motions at greenparty.mb.ca/2020-agm-motions.
If you have any questions, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Green Party of Manitoba.
