June updates from Indiana
Your Signature is Needed!
Watch how easy it is to do your part to restore fair democracy in Indiana. This short instructional video explains how to sign a petition to get our candidate for Secretary of State, George Wolfe, on the ballot for the November Election.
The Green Party has never had ballot access in Indiana, but we have a chance to change that if we act now.
Our opportunity to provide Hoosiers with a choice is coming to an end. The signature threshold is steep, so you signing George’s petition is essential to achieving ballot access.In a matter of just a few minutes, you can contribute to fair elections and participate in democracy by signing George’s petition. Only when we work together can we break the two-party trap.
We are now accepting membership applications online. Become an official member of the Indiana Green Party and apply for membership today.
