**UPDATED June 12 at 5:06**

I'm not sure the cause of this error, but the Green Party doesn't seem to exist in your primary result report.


All of our candidates, including myself, have been listed as having won uncontested Republican Party primaries.

For State Senate, the Maine Green Party had five uncontested primaries: 

Asher Platts
Fred Horch
Danielle Unterriener
Alice Knapp
Mark Diehl

For State House, the Maine Green Party had ten uncontested primaries:
Paige K Brown
Bob Klotz
Sam Chandler
Mike Wakefield
Randall Parr
Tom MacMillan
Ben Schattenburg
Dan Stromgren
Reed Berkowitz
Lisa Willey

All of them are listed as being Republicans on your website.  

The Maine Green Independent Party has legal recognition from the State of Maine equal to the Democratic and Republican parties.  Our candidates should be listed under their own party affiliation.
Thank you.

Asher Platts
Chair, Maine Green Independent Party
207-200-MGIP (6447)
