Green Party: make history- help get on ballot in all states

Together, we can make history –  help the Green Party get on theballot in all states. What will the American voter face at the polls this November: the same two choices they’ve been faced with for decades -or something new? Will they be able to choose Green? The answer depends on you.
 
The Green Party plans to run 1,000 candidates, from the municipal to federal level this year – more Green Candidates than ever before.  Our Ballot Access Committee is working with state Green Parties to make sure the voters can vote Green on their ballot in all 51 states this year. But we need your help to make it a success.
 
We’ve already shown remarkable success! Last Thursday, the Green Party of Arizona turned in almost 30,000 signatures, far more than needed, to make sure the Green Party will appear on the ballot this fall. This success was
possible because of significant financial support from the national Green
Party, plus direct donations and tremendous volunteer assistance from Greens
across the United States.
 
"With just 3 or 4 weeks to go and only 13,000 signatures in hand, I thought
we were doomed to failure!" said Richard Scott, Co-Chair Arizona Ballot
Access Committee.  "But it was the cooperative efforts of Greens from all
over the country both in raising money and in traveling to Arizona to help
collect signatures that put us over the top!" said Scott. "I can’t thank all
the helpers and contributors enough.  We will remember this in Arizona and
we will be more than willing to help the next state with their ballot drive.
This shows just what we can do when we pull together."
 
The success of the Arizona drive provides a model for supporting other
drives. Texas and Virginia are our next. With your help, we can do it! Your
donation  will go towards financial support for state green parties trying
to secure ballot lines in 2008 and supporting the goal of running 1,000
Green Party candidates across the United States in 2008.
 
In order to do this, we need to raise money.  Half of the money raised will
go directly to Ballot Access campaigns and half to support the general fund.
The general fund is what keeps the Green Party’s doors open, and is also the
source of funding for the Coordinated Campaign Committee (CCC). The CCC
provides support for Green candidates nationally through campaign schools,
candidate trainings, and financial and material support to Green Campaigns.
Both the general fund and ballot access fund need to be increased in order
to make securing ballot lines and supporting the candidates running on those
lines possible.
 
We can’t do this without your help. Here’s what you can do right now:
