Georgia Green Party Celebrates Another Ballot Access Victory


Party Turns Attention to Retaining Ballot Line for Future Elections

Tuesday morning, the Georgia Green Party filed with the Elections Division for the Georgia Secretary of State’s office a nomination petition consisting of 1,672 pages of signatures from Georgia voters. State Party leadership are extending their appreciation to dozens of petition circulators from around and beyond Georgia who collected signatures in the hot Georgia Summer sun. The filing provides a comfortable margin beyond the 7,500 signatures threshold imposed by Order of Judge Richard Story who on March 17th struck down as unconstitutional the application of the Georgia Election Code to deny access to the state ballot for Presidential campaigns of emerging political parties.
