The 2004 national convention of the Green Party (United States), FORWARD 2004!:The Green National Convention, was held at the Hyatt Regency and the Midwest Center Milwaukee, Wisconsin on June 23-28, 2004.

Round 1 of Presidential nomination voting[edit]

The voting at the national convention was complicated by the broad support for Ralph Nader, the 2000 nominee, in spite of his not seeking nor expressing interest in accepting the Green nomination in 2004. Several candidates, most notably Peter Camejo, presented themselves in various states as stand-ins for Nader. Many Nader supporters voted "no nominee" in order to free the convention and state parties to endorse Nader's independent candidacy.

770 delegates voting; majority = 386 votes [1]

Round 2 of Presidential nomination voting[edit]

According to the Green papers website, Peter Camejo, Carol Miller, Ralph Nader, and Lorna Salzman were eliminated because they did not indicate, in writing, that they would accept the nomination as the Green Party candidate for President.

770 delegates voting; majority = 386 votes [2]

Vice Presidential candidate[edit]

The party also nominated Pat LaMarche of Maine as its candidate for vice-president.
