Did you know it takes almost one million signatures from registered voters to get on the ballot as Independent for POTUS in the United States? I worked as the 2008 National Ballot Access Coordinator for Indendent Presidential Candidate Ralph Nader successfully getting him on the ballot in 45 states plus D.C. (TY Nader Raiders). I have been asked to coordinate a 2016 Independent Presidential Ballot Drive. I truly take a non-partisan stance and believe that we need “More Voices, More Choices” on the ballot!#Independent #BallotAccess #ElectoralReform #OpenElections #Petitioning#MoreVoicesMoreChoices
In addition to her work on the 2008 and 2004 Independent campaigns of Ralph Nader, Tobin is the founder of Free & Equal Elections Foundation and in 2010 was the Libertarian candidate for California Secretary of State. In the comments on her post, she confirms that she has accepted the offer.
Tobin has not confirmed the identity of the candidate, but it is rumored to be Jim Webb, former Virginia Senator and Secretary of the Navy, who dropped out of the Democratic primary earlier this year to announce that he was exploring an independent run.
