Seven Days Left for Illinois Ballot
The Jill Stein campaign is calling for help as Greens have just 7 days remaining to secure the thousands of signatures necessary to get on the ballot in Illinois. Illinois is significant as it is the most populous state left that the Green Party is not on the ballot yet. The Green Party is already on the ballot in California, Texas, New York, and Florida.
From the Stein Campaign:
7 days to win Illinois, with your help
The temperatures are near 100 in Illinois this week. In the Carbondale area, they’ve been working the local fairs. In Chicago, they are sleeping 10 to a room and putting in long days across the city. From Rockford to Champaign Urbana, volunteers for Jill Stein and the Green Party are pushing hard to put Illinois on the ballot.
We are closing in on the minimum signature threshold right now. But we need many more signatures to guarantee the Illinois Greens a ballot line. This is after all, still Illinois, and still 21st century America, where different rules apply to different people. We must have a large safety margin to make sure that partisan election administrators don’t deny us the ballot.
Your donation right now will help win Illinois. We are sending volunteers from across the country to Chicago and other cities. We are providing a minimal daily stipend for food and public transportation expenses. We have rented an apartment for two weeks so that volunteers are in one place and have a place to stay. And we will bring in additional paid petitioners if we can afford to do so. Your donation can put Illinois on ballot. Please donate now.
