Green Party of New York State 


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 decision to raise ballot access 
thresholds to 2% of the vote for presidential and gubernatorial 
elections 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 vowing to fight this 
decision until it is overturned.


Right now...or at least as SOON as you can TODAY...Go to GPNY.org to the 
Action Page where you can do the following: 

  1. 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
  2. Email the Commission. Tell them you just spoke to your
     representatives on the Legislature and asked them to SHUT DOWN any
     proposal that restricts party choice in NY.
  3. Tell us how you did
  4. 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 
Share the action page. Ask them to act today.


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
Green Party of New York

*p.s. there may be legal fights ahead. We have to prepare for that and 
fighting in court is costly. Give today to so the Green Party can be
