Description The 2d Greenback National Convention assembled in Exposition Hall in Chicago IL.

James B. Weaver was nominated for President on the first ballot, as seen below. When the roll call was taken, Weaver placed first with 224.5 votes; as the votes of the states were being summarized, however, all other votes were shifted to him, nominating him by acclamation on the first ballot after shifts. Two contenders received fractional votes in the pre-shift ballot: Weaver, who received 224.5, and Wright, who received 126.5.
