Thank you Long Island!
Malachy’s vote totals in
Nassau and Suffolk
[Note: numbers adjusted February 2007 with BOE official results]
In 2006, Malachy McCourt ran for Governor of New York on the Green Party line.
Each area of the state needed to exceed the 2002 Green Party Governor tallies by 20% in order to achieve the ballot status numbers. Suffolk exceeded the 2002 numbers by 47%, jumping from 1,978 to 2,908 votes. And Nassau exceeded the 2002 numbers by 46%, jumping from 1,572 to 2,296 votes.
The Malachy McCourt/Green Party vote total was 42,166. A party needs 50,000 votes in order to earn automatic ballot status.
In addition, based on our successul petition drive, you may still register Green in New York by writing in “Green” on the line that says “other” on a voter registration form.
Many thanks for all your help and support.

“I support Howie Hawkins in his campaign against Hillary Clinton and I support Malachy McCourt in his campaign for governor.”
“I am supporting Malachy McCourt…He is a man of courage, integrity, he’s a dear friend of mine. I believe the people of NY want peace. I do a lot of work here, everywhere I go, people are energized for peace. And, people really are tired of the same party politics as usual.”

The Iraq War has had too high a cost to Iraqis, to Americans, and specifically to New Yorkers. It has cost the lives of 114 New Yorkers and nearly $24 Billion of New Yorkers’ taxes so far. The Green Party has continually opposed entry into the Iraq war and has consistently called for the immediate return of our troops, in stark contrast to the Democratic and Republican parties. The Green Party is America’s Peace Party. It’s time for the rank and file of America’s Peace Movement to come home to America’s Peace Party:Today we march, tomorrow we vote Green Party.
The Green Party of New York State needs to get 50,000 votes for Governor in order to regain automatic ballot status. Being a ballot status party allows us to run many more candidates. With ballot status in 2001, we ran over 200 candidates. Without ballot status in 2005, we ran only 20 candidates.
