It would cost us $14,100 to get Green Party candidate statements printed in the Oregon Voter's Pamphlet which is mailed to every voter for the November 2016 election. The good news is, we can avoid those fees.
But we need your help.
We can petition the Secretary of State to waive those onerous amounts. We need volunteers to hit the streets now and circulate petitions before August 16th! So time is of the essence. To help out contact:

PETITIONS and FLYERS
If you haven't gathered signatures before, you might review this summary guide for volunteer petition circulators. When you print the petitions out, be sure to print the statement on the reverse of the signature sheet.
(1) having the Jill Stein flyer on the back of your clipboard is an easy way to attract folks to sign the petitions
(2) the Pacific Green Party statement as formatted by the SOS takes two pages, which makes it impossible to print the statement on the reverse of the signature page. However,
(3) the statement has been shrunk onto one page - PDF File (3) - and you can print this on the reverse of the signature page.
- check that you've signed your name, printed your name, and dated the petition as circulator.
- mail the petitions via PRIORITY mail with tracking, or hand deliver petitions to our Eugene office. The party will reimburse you the mailing costs.
- call Trisha at 541-337-6786 to alert her that petitions are due in the mail.

Pacific Green Party candidate for Oregon Secretary of State Alan Zundel and Alex Polikoff (running for Oregon House District 23) have been at the Corvallis Farmers Market gathering signatures for an historic Ranked Choice Voting election reform initiative. The initiative, sponsored by an alliance of Democratic and Green party members, would institute ranked choice voting in Benton County, Oregon. For more information click here. You too can work towards election reform by volunteering to collect signatures for this initiative and other petition efforts across the state.
It is a sad day when Bernie Sanders bows before a corrupt Democratic party and endorses a war-monger like Hillary Clinton. Do not give up hope! The Green Party has an awesome platform and is running candidates. We invite you to join us and take action to keep the revolution going:

Good article in the Corvallis Gazette-Times covering our Ranked Choice Voting initiative and the progress we've made so far, gathering about 2,000 signatures towards a required 2,895 to get on the ballot. We plan to gather around 3,600 signatures to make sure we have enough valid signatures, and we still need volunteers!
