Green Party of Pennsylvania files nomination petitions to put fracking, healthcare, more on ballot
PHILADELPHIA – On Monday, August 1, the Green Party of Pennsylvania (GPPA) filed more than 500 petitions containing thousands of signatures from registered voters from across the state to qualify five candidates for ballot access in the November 2022 general election. This will put critical issues like fracking, climate change, healthcare, criminal justice modernization, corruption in government, and voting reforms on the ballot, giving voters a starkly different political vision than offered by Republicans and Democrats.
