The Green Party of Michigan (GPMI) has selected its 15 delegates and 15 alternates to represent the party at the upcoming Presidential Nominating Convention (PNC) of the Green Party of the United States next month.

Members of GPMI applied to be part of the state's delegation May 1-31, and the State Central Committee (SCC) considered those applications June 1-12 before using approval voting to indicate all the candidates they supported.  The voting ended June 19, just before the state's nominating convention June 20 -- its first ever statewide virtual meeting.

Party members participating at the convention agreed by unanimous consent to ratify the vote, and a working group met the next day to finalize the results.  The basic order of SCC voting results was preserved, with the top 15 vote-getters selected as delegates and the next 15 as alternates.

The working group broke ties at the dividing lines in favor of improving the gender balance of the delegation.  Amanda Slepr was offered and accepted the position of state reporter, the person who will announce GPMI's votes at the convention.

The members of the delegation are:
