Ralph Nader and Winona LaDuke were nominated with 92% of the vote, with the remainder being split evenly between Jello Biafra and Stephen Gaskin. The convention delegates also approved the convention platform that Nader and LaDuke ran on.

The convention was a big success in bringing the Green Party message to millions of Americans who had never heard of it and demonstrated that the Green Party is the serious alternative to the two-party duopoly.
