ELECTION 2022 Shows Positive Gains for Greens in South Carolina
The South Carolina Green Party had five candidates on ballots across the state, including two state-wide races. Election returns show an increase in voter support for the Green Party as David Edmond received 15% of the vote, over 213,000 votes in his race for Commissioner of Agriculture. Patricia Mickel received over 27,000 votes in the politically-charged race for Superintendent of Education. Larry Gaither received 1.5% of the vote in the District 5 U.S. Congressional race against Insurrectionist, Ralph Norman.
In the two local races, Michael Stewart won re-election to his non-partisan seat on the Greenville County Soil & Water Conservation District. While Charla Henson-Simons finished an impressive inaugural campaign for the South Carolina State House District 70 receiving 456 votes against a Democratic candidate with strong financial support from their national party.
As always, we are proud of the effort our candidates put in to their campaigns and the Green Party will continue to find ways to support the people of South Carolina.

We are grassroots activists, environmentalists, advocates for social justice, nonviolent resisters, and regular citizens who’ve had enough of corporate-dominated politics. Government must be part of the solution, but when it’s controlled by the 1%, it’s part of the problem. The longer we wait for change, the harder it gets. Don’t vote for the lesser of two evils on election day. Vote Green!
