The Jill Stein 2024 presidential campaign is the ongoing campaign of Jill Stein for President of the United States in the upcoming 2024 United States presidential election. She is currently seeking the nomination of the Green Party in the 2024 Green Party presidential primaries. Stein was previously the nominee of the Green Party in the 2012 United States presidential election and the 2016 United States presidential election, in the latter of which she gained the most popular votes of any Green Party presidential nominee ever.

Stein announced her campaign via X (formerly Twitter) on November 9, 2023. She has painted herself as an alternative to the "failed two-party system" and has has called for an end to the 2023 Israel–Hamas war, criticizing Joe Biden for supporting Israel.[1] Some political analysts believe that Stein could serve as a spoiler for the Biden reelection campaign, pulling Gen Z votes away from Biden.[2] This belief has been furthered by the Green Party's recent winning of ballot access in the swing state of Arizona.[3]
