|Hello again Greens and supporters!
Early voting starts October 24, and Election Day is only 30 days away, on November 3! Your help is needed to save the Green Party ballot line in New York State by getting out the vote for the Hawkins/Walker campaign! Months ago, Gov. Cuomo hatched a scheme to kill off the Green Party and other alternative parties in NY.
Although the Green Party is working with other alternative parties to legally challenge Cuomo’s extreme voter disenfranchisement, we may not prevail in the courts. If not, we’re required to get 130,000 votes in the presidential race or 2% of votes cast, just to maintain our ballot line!
Never before have New York’s political parties been required to qualify for ballot access during a presidential election. Previously, ballot access for any party was only required in the governor’s race. For Cuomo to change these laws suddenly, with no public comment, in the middle of a pandemic, is outrageous and utterly undemocratic.
HERE’S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
Sign up with the Hawkins/Walker campaign to make phone calls to NY voters and encourage them to vote Green. The calling process is VERY easy, done through CallHub, which makes calls for you! Just log in on your home computer and your own cell phone, then simply check boxes on your computer screen when each call is done. It’s EXTREMELY important to make these calls to get out the vote to SAVE OUR BALLOT LINE! Sign up or contact Sandy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
