From the Illinois Green Party website:
The Illinois Green Party is calling for candidates to come forward for the 2012 election cycle. Voter discontent with the two entrenched parties continues to grow, and here in Illinois the Green Party remains the only viable alternative for most voters!
Now is a good time for Greens in all states to consider running for office in 2012. Anyone considering a run should contact their state and/or local parties to discuss the details.
