In 38 years, there have been only eight successful attempts by minor parties or independent candidates to collect the tens of thousands of signatures required by Indiana law to guarantee a spot in state elections, according to a new lawsuit by the Indiana Green Party and Libertarian Party.
The lawsuit, which was filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, says minor parties and independents face "substantial or severe burdens" because of Indiana's "unconstitutional" rules governing how they can qualify for state races.Read more

LAWRENCE, KS – The Kansas Green Party bill to reduce the number of signatures required for official party recognition has been introduced in the House Elections Committee as House Bill 2578! The next step for us to get our bill passed is to get a hearing on the bill and convince the committee to vote to pass the bill out of committee!
Passage of our Ballot Access Reform Bill will be a game-changer for the Kansas Green Party! After a successful petition drive, it will allow Kansas voters to register as Green and it will allow us to nominate our own candidates if we petition under the new law. We need your help to get our hearing and a favorable vote from the committee!Read more
LAWRENCE, KS – The Kansas Green Party will begin collecting signatures on Earth Day, April 22, 2021 and will continue until October 18, 2021. Attaining ballot access is likely the most important thing we can do to grow the Green Party in Kansas. Once we have ballot access, the Kansas Green Party can nominate candidates for ANY PARTISAN OFFICE and registered Kansas voters will be able to register as Greens.
To attain ballot access, we must collect signatures for an Official Party Recognition Petition. The required number of signatures must be collected within 180 days and submitted to the Secretary of State.
Over the past several elections our candidates and national party have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to get our candidates on the ballot. Every state has ballot access requirements political parties must meet. Numerous states mandate candidates meet a threshold to maintain that ballot line. To meet requirements, we need volunteers to collect petition signatures, phonebank, provide graphic design or written content, and many other various tasks. We also need donations to help us fund our activities in all 50 states + DC.
Please fill out the volunteer form below to help us get on the ballot in 2022, 2024 and beyond!
Even if you live in a state with ballot access, chances are you have neighboring state parties who could use your help.
All donations will be earmarked for ballot access and be used to help us achieve the goal of ballot access in all states and territories.
As a "third party," we face a lot of obstacles just to get our candidates on the ballot. This is one of the many ways our broken political system keeps people like you from having candidates and elected officials that reflect your views and desires. Each state has a different set of rules, and some are much more difficult to get on than others.
The Ballot Access Committee (BAC) works with our state parties and volunteers to help them mount successful ballot drives, including but not limited to making sure our Presidential ticket is on the ballot in as many states as possible.
