The Maine Green Independent Party is more than just another political party.
Values are what set us apart. Values are what we place our belief in, what we raise our families on, go to our jobs with, and expect our voted officials to uphold. Because our our values, we remain independent of the Wall Street machine that places profit over people, and dominates our State, National, and even local elections.
As a political party we are about upholding 10 KEY Values adopted by the U.S. Green movement, which protect human rights and our environment. We are about regulating the economy in favor of the majority and promoting the long-term interests of the State of Maine, the future for the generations to come. We as Mainers seek to make change, increase accountability, and elect officials that vote upholding these 10 Key Values.
We take pride as the Maine Green Independent Party is the oldest state Green party in the United States. It was founded in January 1984 in Augusta, Maine, six months before the establishment of the National Green Party.
The Maine Green Independent Party achieved ballot status on December 21, 1998, after having received 6.6% of the vote in the 1998 gubernatorial election. Today Maine has the highest percentage of registered Greens in the US.
