Help the Greens onto the ballot!
Want to see the Green Party Presidential and VP candidates on Connecticut's ballot this November? We need to submit 7,500 validated signatures to the Secretary of the State by early August to obtain the ballot line, which means we need to collect about 12,000 total. If you're willing to spend a few hours, we'd love to have your help; it's not hard and can be an interesting experience. Email us at email@example.com for more information or to get materials.
