We still await the definitive word from Hawaii on theirballot access filing which was due a couple of weeks ago now.But two signatures were filed for every one required by thelaw and we’re hopeful the Hawaiian Party is in good shape,and has a ballot line to share in November.

The state of Arizona has confirmed that the Green Party willbe on the ballot this November — cause for great celebration.Arizona required over 20,000 valid signatures.

Greens and other McKinney supporters are petitioning andwelcome (with room and board) support from outside the stateboth in Texas (44k signatures by May 27th) and Georgia (44ksigs by July 8th). Other state parties facing draconianballot access barriers include Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana,Oklahoma and North Carolina.
