Maine Green Party Showing for U.S. Senate Was the Best in Maine History for Any Third Party

Ballot Access News

Last month, the Maine Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Lisa Savage, polled 4.95%.  That was the highest showing for U.S. Senate in Maine for any party, other than the Republican and Democratic Parties, in history.  U.S. Senate elections have only existed in the U.S. starting in 1914.

The showing for Lisa Savage shows the power of having ranked choice voting, for boosting minor party vote showings.
