The Green Party has endured with its own ballot line, running its own candidates, for almost 10 years straight. Since they can't knock us out at the ballot box, they're trying to rig the rules of the game.

The Public Campaign Finance Commission's edict to raise ballot access for grassroots parties to the higher of 130,000 or 2% of the vote in presidential and gubernatorial elections, combined with raising the signature requirements for statewide independent candidates to 45,000, is a HUGE blow to democracy that will limit YOUR choices as a voter. It's an attempt to silence YOUR voice as someone who wants a party for People and Planet Over Profit.

Across New York, right now, your fellow Greens are fighting back against this attack until it is defeated.

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN DO:

Right now...Go to GPNY.org to the Action Page where you can do the following: <[link removed]>

- Call your representatives in the NY Assembly AND the Senate. We will help you look up their phone numbers and help you with what to say
- Email the Commission. Tell them you just spoke to your representatives on the Legislature and asked them to SHUT DOWN the proposal and its grossly undemocratic restrictions on voter choice
- Tell us how you did
- Spread the word. Only your voice and the voices in your community can stop this

Tell your friends, allies, and family members that if they EVER want more parties and perspectives to choose from on Election Day — and most voters do! —then they need to speak up NOW <[link removed]>. Share the action page. Ask them to act today.

THIS IS THE BEGINNING

Cuomo and his cronies on this Commission don't know who they're messing with. They are not counting on you and tens of thousands of Greens and allies going to the mat for this party we have fought so hard to build. If you want to avert climate catastrophe, if you want to end capitalism's war on the planet and our lives, then you have to fight.

With Solidarity and Gratitude,
Gloria and Peter
Co-Chairs
Green Party of New York

p.s. It seems now all but certain that the Green Party will have to fight this in court. We have to prepare for that and fighting in court is costly. Give today so the Green Party can be ready. <[link removed]>
