Big Win for Ballot Access!
The Green Party news out of North Carolina is incredible. A law just passed that will reduce the North Carolina Green Party’s ballot-access requirement from a whopping 94,000 petition signatures to about 11,000. The law will finally put North Carolina’s ballot-access laws on par with most states. Thanks to Greens who helped push for its passage!
And with a $5,000 grant from the Green Party of the United States, the North Carolina Green Party is organizing petitioners and phone-banking to ensure it gets on the ballot in 2018—for the first time in history.
Please make a contribution today to celebrate this historic moment for the Green Party! Your donation to the Green Party’s Ballot Access Committee makes grants like the $5K to North Carolina and other states possible.
A contribution of $25 pays for a petitioner to collect 50 signatures. A $500 donation pays for a ballot-access coordinator in Raleigh or Charlotte or Greensboro to mobilize more petitioners hitting the pavement.
Contribute today and help make Green ballot access in North Carolina the major win of 2018!
Last year, the Green Party’s Stein/Baraka presidential ticket was on a record number of state ballots at 45, including Washington, DC.
Ballot-Access-Map-Master-2017-09-28_2.jpgNow, in fall 2017, with the Green Party of Utah achieving ballot status last month and the North Carolina Green Party’s ballot access just around the corner, we’re poised to be on the ballot in 23 states. This outstrips the progress we’d made in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. We’re growing our base and winning, one state at a time. And we’re doing the hard organizing and petitioning work state to state to ensure we’re on the ballot in all 50+1 of them by 2020.
Contribute today to the Ballot Access Committee so we can put more petitioners on the ground—let’s complete our nationwide ballot effort now so we can focus on campaigning in 2018 and 2020 and on.
Onwards towards nationwide ballot access,
Green Party, Secretary
Ballot Access Committee, Co-Chair
P.S.: Organizing efforts in Vermont, Montana, and Nebraska are already under way, too!
