Arizona Greens looking for ballot access signatures
One of the harsh realities for smaller political parties in the United States is difficult ballot access. The Arizona Green Party is undertaking that task again. In a brief article at ABC15.com reporter Joe Balian says that the Green Party of Maricopa County has kicked off their part of the statewide effort, with a goal of bringing in 40,000 signatures over the next year.
The article also reports that the Arizona Green Party has secured ballot status three times in the past twenty years. The Green Party of Pima County and the Green Party of Yavapai County are joining the effort, with the Green Party of Maricopa County already reporting 1323 gathered. Close to 4000 signatures have been gathered so far, and the state party is looking to double their current volunteer base to 40.
