BALLOT ACCESS UPDATES

45 states and the District of Columbia have parties affiliated with the Green Party of the United States <http://www.gp. org/statelist. shtml>. 22 state Green Parties have ballot access for the 2008 national election as of October 2007.

• NATIONAL On October 30, Ralph Nader, Peter Camejo, and six voters filed a lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee. The 30-page complaint details the national Democratic Party’s extensive support for challenges to Mr. Nader’s ballot positions, especially efforts to sabotage ballot petitions and harass petitioners in several states. http://www.ballot- access.org/ 2007/10/30/ nader-sues- democratic-national-committee- for-2004- dirty-tricks/

• ARKANSAS On October 17, the Arkansas Green Party was notified that its petition has been certified. It is the only Arkansas party, other than the Democratic and Republican Parties, that is on the ballot for all offices. http://www.ballot- access.org/ 2007/10/17/ arkansas- says-green- party-is-on-ballot/

• NEW JERSEY On October 17, New Jersey Superior Court Judge Neil H. Shuster ordered that the state grant equal treatment to alternative political parties. The ruling eliminates some of the structural advantages long enjoyed by the Democratic and Republican Parties, and concedes that New Jersey election law must treat alternative parties as official “political parties” for the purposes of campaign finance, lobbying, and voter registration. The lawsuit in the case was filed by the Green Party of New Jersey, the New Jersey Constitution Party, and the New Jersey Libertarian Party. http://www.njapples eed.net/entity_ pdfs/182. pdf

• PENNSYLVANIA Carl Romanelli, 2006 Green candidate for the US Senate, is awaiting a decision from the State Supreme Court on $80,000-plus in costs he was ordered to pay as a penalty for invalidated signatures on his ballot petitions. In an equally troubling and unprecedented twist, the court also encumbered Mr. Romanelli’s attorney, Larry Otter, with fines and costs. Pennsylvania requires over 67,000 valid signatures for third party and independent candidates but only 2,000 signatures for Democrats and Republicans running for US Senator, Governor, or President. Greens have accused the Pennsylvania court system of intimidating third parties and independents and freezing them out of major races by exacting such fines, which are unprecedented in the US. The Green, Libertarian, and Constitution Parties of Pennsylvania have filed a joint law suit in the US Supreme Court against the state’s blatantly unfair and antidemocratic ballot access laws. http://video. google.com/ videoplay? docid=-458679740 1475004986
