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're just over half way on signatures to qualify our Ranked Choice Voting Initiative for the Benton County ballot. But we still have a long way to go and we really, really need some extra hands to put this over the top.

New Green Party FAQ page: http://www.gp.org/faq ... here are some of the questions answered:
• Is Jill Stein the Green nominee?
From the Rolling Stone article: "It's a fallacy that Hillary Clinton is the lesser evil here. Another Clinton in the White House is just going to fan the flames of the right-wing revolt," she says."The lesser evil simply guarantees that the greater evil will be elected in the next election."
"The Green Party candidate rails against corporations and Wall Street. She has a habit of getting arrested—three times in the last election alone. She also happens to be the plan B for a few progressive voters if this whole Bernie thing doesn’t work out. But who is Dr. Stein, really?" ... quote from article in GQ!
The fact that some major media outlets are reporting on Jill Stein's Presidential campaign is a major breakthrough in a time when voters have highly unfavorable views of the two corporate party candidates.
