Register Green, Vote Green?

Register Green, Vote Green?
Help us get the Green Party on the Ballot in NC

Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein's campaign broke records for the Green Party from coast to coast in 2012-- but she was not on the ballot in North Carolina! You can't register Green, you can't vote Green. It's time to get riled up about that, and then get it fixed.

The country needs the Green Party to be a viable alternative, as progressive and independent voters have nowhere to turn in this bought-and-paid-for electoral landscape. If we don't step into this breach NOW, we will lose the moment forever. Climate change, our eroding rights, our collapsing economy will not wait for us to find the time to do the work.

We've done about all we can do to get fair ballot access rules in this state -- now it's time to do it the long way. We have to get all those petition signatures, and we have to raise the funds to support that petitioning campaign. There can hardly be a more pressing priority for Green Party members.

We are a small group in this state, and none of us have the time, energy or wherewithal to make this happen. No core group of activists is going to go out and do this on your behalf. If you do not pull your share of the load, we will not get there. It is only doable if everyone does it. That means you. You have to make a commitment.

I plan to be in touch with each one of you individually to discuss how you can be a part of this campaign. All of our circumstances are different, but all of us are committed to the same goal -- as Rosa Clemente said, "The Green Party is no longer the Alternative, the Green Party is the Imperative."
