Arizona recognizes Green Party as official party

The Green Party is now officially recognized as a political party in Arizona.

The Secretary of State’s Office announced on Wednesday that the Arizona Green Party filed enough signatures to be represented by official party ballots starting with the next primary election on Aug. 24. Party candidates will be eligible for the general election on Nov. 2.

According to the Arizona Green Party Web site, it is an alternative political party focusing on grassroots democracy, environmental quality, and social justice.

The Green Party filed signature petitions with the state’s 15 counties, and more than 24,000 were validated and filed with the Secretary of State’s Office on Tuesday.

There are now four officially recognized political parties in the state: The Republican, Democratic and Libertarian and Green.
