Greens in Pennsylvania are off and running, seeking over 30,000 signatures to get the Green Party’s candidate for President on the ballot. If you live in or near Pennsylvania – you can help!
From the GP of PA:
Green Party Petition Update – April 10, 2012
If you want to help get the Green Party on the ballot for this November, please contact Hillary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send me information about any events that might be good for collecting signatures. This is what I know about so far. More details are in the GPPA Events Calendar.
Philadelphia – Sat, 4/14 – 99% Action Training at Arch Street Methodist Church
Altoona area – Sat. 4/21 – Logan Township Mall event
Philadelphia – Sat. 4/21 – Clear Air 5K and 4th Annual Earth Uprising
Wilkes-Barre – Sat. 4/21 – Restoring Freedoms event
Altoona – Sun, 4/22 – Penn State Altoona Earth Day
Statewide – Tues, 4/24 – Primary Day
Primary Day is one of our best petitioning days of the year. Please plan to take off work or do whatever you can to spend some time at the polls on election day. This is also great practice for our Get Out the Vote efforts in November.
We’re also planning a big weekend in Philadelphia May 5-6. There are two big events in NW Philly that weekend — Mt. Airy Day on Sat., May 5, and the Chestnut Hill Garden Festival on Sunday, May 6. We can arrange for home stays for anyone who can come to Philly and spend the weekend petitioning. Might also get together a fundraiser on Sat. night…stay tuned for details.
Your local Presidential Caucus is also a great place to petition — and more importantly, recruit attendees to join you as petitioners. Bring plenty of blank petitions to your caucus and even do a mini petition training after the caucus if you can. Read more about the caucuses here: http://www.gpofpa.org/index.php?module=htmlpages&func=display&pid=14
Going door-to-door with street lists is a great way to petition and campaign at the same time. If you’re able to knock on doors in your own neighborhood, let me know so I can email you a street list. A street list has the names of all registered voters in a particular area and is sorted by house number so you can just walk up and down the street with it and know whether you’re talking to registered voters or not.
Getting more petitioners
We’re up to 69 people actively collecting signature (or planning to) and we need many more people to make this a success. Can you help reach out to Greens and other potential volunteers in your area? Please let me know. Please also forward this email to your local lists.
Just a reminder as to why we’re doing this…
Thanks and Happy Petitioning!
