Constitution Party: Ballot Access Drive is Heating Up

A link to the following was posted on the Constitution Party’s Facebook page today:

Current Constitution Party ballot access

The Drive for Ballot Access is Heating Up Across the Nation. As options become dim for a conservative presidency from either of the two ruling parties, the importance of an alternative party is increasingly apparent. Ballot Access is the key to opening the door for a Christian Conservative Constitutionist such as Darrell Castle, our 2016 Presidential nominee. Without access to the ballot in November, the Constitution Party cannot elect constitutional candidates at any level of government. Ballot Access is essential for all Constitution Party candidates. It is essential that we gain ballot access in as many states as possible.

Check out the map above to see how we stand at the moment. Then check out the Ballot Access page on our website to learn more. Some states cannot start gathering petitions yet, some are underway. All states are important, both for electoral votes and for our candidates in general.

Bob Ellis, writing for the American Clarion, in an article entitled “Conservatives CAN Vote for a Conservative Candidate” said this, “So if you’re a conservative who doesn’t think you can bring yourself to vote for a Democrat-with-an-“R”-after-his-name in the general presidential election, give the Constitution Party some thought. You might even decide to help get them on the ballot if they aren’t already in your state. Just a dozen or two dedicated people across your state could probably do it, and there might still be time to make it happen.” Read his full article here.

Yes, friends, we can make it happen!

We have raised several hundred dollars for ballot access since May 4th. It will be wisely allocated. Thank you to all who have contributed either financially, or by volunteering to get signatures, or by signing petitions in your home states. More is needed to finish the task. Even a small gift is appreciated and of great importance would be monthly donations between now and November.

We have targeted four states this month: Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, and Alabama.
In Iowa we need: 1,500 signatures. Deadline is August 19th
In Nebraska we need: 2,500 signatures for presidential candidate but 5,395 signatures are needed to get all Constitution Party candidates on the ballot. Deadline for either is August 1st.
In Kansas we need: 5,000 signatures. Deadline is August 1st.
In Alabama we need: 5,000 signatures. Deadline is August 18th.
For more information about ballot access in Iowa, Nebraska, and Kansas, please contact Mid-Western States Regional Co-Chairman Lori Stacey at sdakotacp@gmail.com.

For more information about ballot access in Alabama, contact state chairman Joshua Cassity at jcassity@cpalabama.org

Donate to the national ballot access effort through our website. Make sure you select “Ballot Access” in the drop down menu when asked “How may we attribute your donation?”

  1. Quite an inaccurate map; Oregon is still with the IAP and will likely put their presidential candidate on their ballot and not Castle. The Idaho CP has officially put Scott Copeland on their ballot instead of Castle; it’s already set in stone with the Idaho SoS.
