Members of the Massachusetts Green Party urged voters to consider the issues ‘-‘- not the personalities ‘-‘- for the 2008 presidential election when voting in November.
People are not apathetic to voting in the United States, but instead many do not understand the importance of their vote, Massachusetts Green Party Co-Chairwoman Merelice, who legally goes by one name, said.
‘Your vote is your voice,’ she said in a speech Sunday morning at the Community Church of Boston. ‘Your voice really needs to be heard and not just on the candidates.’
The Green Party achieved success this election year after gaining a presidential nominee in Cynthia McKinney on the November ballot. McKinney and her running mate, Rosa Clemente, will appear on the ballot in 32 states.
