ACTION ALERT: Stand up for Voter Freedom in Texas

As you know, Texas election law is currently among the most undemocratic and restrictive in the country, prohibiting people from their democratic right to vote for alternatives to the Democratic and Republican parties. Recent estimates show that some 83,000 petition signatures would be needed, from people who have not voted in a previous primary, in order to put the Green Party on the ballot in Texas. The current law states that if those signatures are not collected, then a candidate for a statewide office would have to reach 5 percent of the vote in order to ensure their party retains ballot status. Martina Salina's heroic campaign in 2016 for Railroad Commission received over 2 percent ... a powerful effort, but one which sadly fell short. But Martina's effort appears to be close to bearing fruit, finally. Continue reading
