 June 2020 News


From June 14th - June 20th The National Lavender Green Caucus held it's Presidential Nominating Convention and Local Candidate Endorsement.    We used Scottish Transferable Vote which is a form of Ranked Choice Voting provided by OpaVote to conduct our election.  The election results were verified by the Secretary, Colin Bartlett and Co-Chair, Margaret Elisabeth and published on June 21, 2020.

You can go here to see the full results, count the ballots yourself, and generally play with the data as you wish.
 

The results are:

Hunter Crow has WON our endorsement for Arlington City Council District 7!

Robin Lauraine has WON our endorsement for  Michigan State University Board of Trustees!

For the Presidential Candidates:

Howie Hawkins won a majority outright, with 51.2% of the vote. 

Dario Hunter came in on a very narrow second place with 42.5% of the vote.

David Rolde and Sedinam Moyowasifza-Curry each won 2.5% of the vote. 

When David Rolde and Sedinam Moyowasifza-Curry are eliminated in the second round, their voters go to both Hawkins and Hunter, although Hunter receives the majority of them:

Howie Hawkins would now have 52.5%.

Dario Hunter would now have 46.25%

Because we are apportioned four delegates, these delegates will be split between Howie Hawkins and Dario Hunter, with each receiving two delegates at  the GPUS National Convention.
