Indiana Ballot Access Campaign
In the 2016 elections, Indiana was 1 of only 6 states nationwide without the Green Party on the ballot. We need your help to change that.
We are currently collecting signatures for the office of Secretary of State. This will ultimately work to grant the Indiana Green Party future ballot access for all major positions across the state. We have a relatively small window to collect all of the signatures we need. Because time is of the essence, we are starting the petition campaign now. If we do this right, future Indiana Green Party candidates will not have to petition for signatures again!
★ Here’s Everything You Need to Petition for Signatures ★
Note- the state requires all signatures be on paper. You *can* sign and mail-in the paper form yourself (and encourage your friends/family to do the same). Just print the 2-sided petition form, fill out the front-side as described in the video below, then mail it to your voter registration office listed here.

* Video Correction - Petitions should be submitted to EACH SIGNER'S County Voter Registration Office.
** For clarity about voting percentage thresholds:
"If the new party's candidate for secretary of state receives at least 2 percent of the total votes cast for that office, the party can nominate its candidates at a state convention rather than by petition method in future elections. If the new party's candidate for secretary of state receives at least 10 percent of the total votes cast for that office, the party can nominate its candidates via primary election."
