With your help we won't be paying no stinkin' filing fees!

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:

Notes

(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. 

IMPORTANT

  1. check that you've signed your name, printed your name, and dated the petition as circulator.
  2. mail the petitions via PRIORITY mail with tracking, or hand deliver petitions to our Eugene office.  The party will reimburse you the mailing costs.
  3. call Trisha at 541-337-6786 to alert her that petitions are due in the mail.

PO Box 1606
Eugene OR 97440

Office address is 454 Willamette St, #219.

We will validate signatures against our state-wide voter file, and on August 16th will hand deliver petitions to the Secretary of State office in Salem.

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:
