Most European countries, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and South Korea, make at least some use of Ranked Choice Voting or Proportional Representation, and thus have more than two parties represented. Even some countries who do use winner take all, such as Canada and the UK, also have more than two parties represented due to much fairer ballot access requirements. Canada, for instance, requires 100 signatures to run for a seat in their national parliament. Here in Illinois, the signature requirement for third parties and Independents is around 1,500 for state legislature, 15,000 for the House and 25,000 for the Senate. (author: Joshua Hellman)
Please help us to collect signatures for ballot access for the Green Party in 2024. We will need over 45,000 signatures because we are always challenged by you know who - Democrats!
Please sign up below to volunteer to help Greens to win ballot access in all 50 states + DC and territories. Also, you can help to fund our nationwide ballot access efforts by making a donation to our Ballot Access Committee fund.
