NC Green Party received a generous grant of $6,000 from the national Green Party ballot access fund, and our goal is to raise at least an additional $9,000 to fund our petitioning drive. After the 2020 elections, the NCGP was kicked off the ballot, largely due to barriers that Covid presented to nationwide petitioning and get-out-the-vote efforts. We now have to collect about 14,000 petition signatures on paper. Because of onerous ballot access laws designed to keep independent and working class political choices off the ballot, running candidates as independents for most offices is actually far more difficult than re-qualifying for party recognition. Meanwhile, the governor and General Assembly have not responded to us to correct this undemocratic treatment during a global pandemic.
Your contribution to the North Carolina Green Party's ballot access fund will help us:
Hire ballot access organizers,
Pay stipends to petitioners
Hire phonebankers and textbankers,
Pay tabling fees at fairs, festivals, and other events,
Cover petitioning materials, printing, and transportation costs, and
Run strong NC Green Party candidates for office and fight for political independence from the parties of Wall Street and War!
No one else will fund this work except Greens like you. Please contribute what you can today.
You can also help by lending a hand with petitioning:
Get our petition sheet and petitioning guide, and sign up to volunteer
at our Petitioning Page.
Even if you get just your family and friends to sign our petition, it will be a big help.
Thanks for your support!
