GPNYS adopts peace symbol for ballot icon

The Green Party of New York State at yesterday’s State Committee meeting adopted the classic and iconic peace symbol as the emblem that will appear on voting ballots in New York State elections.

The symbol was chosen overwhelmingly by the members from a number of choices that were submitted for approval.

Nonviolence is one of the Key Values upon which the Green Party was founded. The choice of the peace symbol makes it clear that the Green Party is the only ballot status political party in New York actively opposed to war and dedicated to nonviolence.

The symbol will now appear on New York State ballots along side the Democratic star, Republican eagle, Conservative liberty torch, Independent Party eagle with superimposed “I” and Working Families “WF”
