Green Party Presidential Candidate Howie Hawkins is launching his ballot-access campaign across the United States.

The Green Party already has ballot-access in 21 states, including the District of Columbia. The states include, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Louisiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and West Virginia.

In 14 of the remaining 30 states where the Green Party does not have ballot-access, residents can organize and petition right now. These states include, Arizona, Alabama, Alaska, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, and Wyoming.

Arkansas, Iowa, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Dakota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin, will begin to allow petitioners either late 2019 or in 2020, varying per state.

Hawkins’ Campaign is Organizing

Hawkins’ campaign is currently organizing in Arizona, Georgia, Indiana, Maryland, Nebraska, Nevada, Ohio, South Dakota, and Vermont.

On Hawkins’ website, the campaign is calling for volunteers to petition and organize in one of their nine focus states or in a neighboring state, call supporters, sign up to petition in another state once permitted.

He is also calling for donations from his supporters. Per matching funds, when you donate up to $250, the federal government will match the funds and double the cash the Hawkins’ campaign receives.

Regardless of where you live, you can help with their ballot-access drive by signing up on their official campaign website. See www.HowieHawkins.US.

    Getting a Presidential candidate for the Greens should be a UNIFIED national party effort not a divided candidate centered effort. Open and fair elections mean working as a team no matter the primary winner.

    Giving one candidate MONEY for ballot access instead of the whole party for constructive drive is a terrible idea.

    Hawkins agrees and members of his campaign team are working with both the Green Party Ballot Access Committee and with state parties seeking ballot access.

    Spin,spin, spin. Give candidate x money not the party?
    Posts by his leadership say ballot access should ” candidate centered” and always has been! (Blankenship)

    Where is the national plan? Past co chair says no national plan. Current co chairs have a plan?

    Give one candidate for ballot drives. Nope.
