The Vermont Green Party was one of two state Green parties that broke with the Green Party of the United States and decided not to list David Cobb and Pat LaMarche on the ballot as its presidential and vice presidential candidates. At a September 2004 meeting "after lengthy debate and through a democratic vote" members endorsed, but did not nominate Ralph Nader and Peter Camejo.
Nader pursued the independent
On Sept. 17, 2004 the Nader campaign reported it had turned in "1,278
signatures from more than 50 towns in Vermont," qualifying Nader for
ballot as an independent. (To appear on the ballot as for
as an independent or under a party label not officially organized in
a candidate needed to file petitions with 1,000 signatures, verified by
town clerks, in the office of the Secretary of State, between Sept. 3
Sept. 17, 2004).
Vermont State Coordinator: Ashley A. Smith.
