How can I help?

Indiana Green Party Ballot Access Resources

Help Indiana in 2020

  1. For now, best to email several government agencies. Would suggest making your own email before doing a form letter. Suggestions on what to add can be found
    1. GPUS = https://www.gp.org/covid19-ballot
    2. Indiana Green Party = https://www.greenpartyin.com/latest-news/indiana-ballot-access-campaign/
  2. Best to address the following people:
    1. Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson = https://www.in.gov/sos/ or constituent@sos.in.gov
    2. Brad King, legal council for the Indiana Election Division = https://www.in.gov/sos/elections or bking@iec.in.gov
    3. Paul Okeson, chair of the Indiana Election Commission = elections@iec.in.gov
  3. Best to contact Governor Holcomb as a last resource = https://www.in.gov/gov/. Should you do decide on Governor Holcomb, I recommend he call a special session to allow the General Assembly to give ballot access relief.

Help Indiana in 2021 and Beyond

  1. When you contact the above people in the 2020 section, I would recommend contacting your state legislators. To find them, best to go to = http://iga.in.gov/legislative/find-legislators/
  2. Also, if your community has either a Cracker Barrel or 3rd House Sessions [aka Meet the local General Assembly members’ sessions that occur while the Indiana General Assembly is in session starting January 2021], best to attend those. You can find them at the following locations:
    1. ACLU Indiana = https://www.aclu-in.org/en/resources/advocacy/third-house-meetings
    2. Hoosier Environmental Council = https://www.hecweb.org/events/action~agenda/request_format~json/cat_ids~255/
