The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear a challenge to New York's 2020 election reform laws that raised the threshold for third political parties to appear on the ballot.
In the past, to achieve statewide ballot status, minor political parties needed to earn 50,000 votes for their candidates in the previous election. In other words, they needed 50,000 votes to qualify for the ballot every four years – rules that have been in place for decades. The law passed three years ago now requires that minor parties garner 130,000 votes or 2% of votes cast. Failure to do so would mean removal from the ballot in the next cycle. In addition, they demand that qualifications occur every two years, rather than four, at the gubernatorial and presidential elections.
The Green Party of Utah (GPUT) has been gathering signatures to regain ballot access. We are only a fraction of the way there. To get ballot access for the 2024 elections, we need more help to gather the signatures required by November 30, 2023!
The Green Party is circulating a petition to win official political party status in South Dakota. To place any candidates on South Dakota’s general election ballot in 2024, budding Greens must submit a petition with the signatures of at least 3,502 registered South Dakota voters to the Secretary of State by July 1, 2024. State law would then give the Greens the right to nominate Presidential electors, statewide candidates, and Congressional and Legislative candidates at convention by August 13, 2024.
Greens are close to achieving historic ballot access in South Dakota! Several Green Party supporters in South Dakota have been collecting signatures. We are only one month away from achieving our goal: we only need about 1,500 more signatures by early October to confidently submit our application for ballot access!
Missouri Green Party volunteers from around Missouri are meeting monthly to coordinate our bid to regain our statewide ballot access. Although we started petitioning in January and now have over 3000 signatures collected, we still have a long way to go. Momentum is gathering (both here and around the country) for the Green Party in 2024, so now is the time to add your shoulder to the wheel alongside your neighbors to challenge the thoroughly corrupt and unresponsive pay-to-play politics at City Hall, at the county courthouse, in Jefferson City, and in Washington DC.
The number one priority of the Arizona Green Party is to regain our ability to run corporate-free candidates in Arizona in 2024. We are gathering 60,000 signatures by October 31st in advance of the mid-November deadline. The Arizona Green Party is asking for you help with our ballot access petitioning campaign. Help restore Democracy in Arizona!
