From grunge to the Grange: Nirvana’s former bassist Krist Novoselic is running for clerk of a rural county in Washington, Wahkiakum, to protest his state’s practice of allowing candidates name their own party affiliation. He’s head of his local chapter of the Grange, a civic organization.

Krist says he’s declared his candidacy under the "Grange Party" banner, even if that’s not a political party in the first place.

 

He tells The Daily World that he’s protesting the state’s system that lets candidates say what party they prefer when running for office, because it’s confusing for voters and lets candidates appropriate the names of private associations.
