Minnesota Ballot Access

**Notice: Ballots in Minnesota will list "Jill Stein / Howie Hawkins" for the Green Party presidential ticket. Minnesota ballots will not list Ajamu Baraka as the VP candidate. Voters should cast a vote for Jill Stein / Howie Hawkins. These votes are completely valid and will count toward Jill Stein's popular vote. If Jill wins the election, her electors will simply cast electoral votes for Jill and Ajamu Baraka. So a vote for Jill/Howie is a vote for Jill/Ajamu. Bottom line: Voters in Minnesota should not deface their ballot by crossing out Howie's name. They should vote for Jill Stein / Howie Hawkins.**





Please click here to make sure you've signed up at our volunteer page to get Jill on the ballot. Check the box labeled “I will petition to get Jill Stein on the ballot.”

In Minnesota, we need your help to collect 2,000 signatures from registered voters in the state on a specific petitioning sheet. We have until August 23 to do it, but ideally want to complete the task as soon as possible to help support the national campaign show we're strong and should be included in polling in debates.  So we need your help!

We had our first petitioning kickoff meeting on Monday June 6th, and distributed petitions and instructions to a number of eager volunteers. Now we're working to update this page with all of the necessary information so that additional volunteers can download and print everything they need to join in. Below you'll find links to the petition and guidelines for collecting signatures. Over the next few days we'll try to add some additional helpful tools for talking with people about what it means to sign the petition.

Our state ballot access coordinator for Minnesota is Cam Gordon. If you have questions or need to have petitions and information mailed to you, he can be contacted by email at camgordon333@msn.com or by phone at 612-296-0579. If you've already collected signatures and need to mail them back, you can send them to Cam at 914 Franklin Ter, Minneapolis, MN 55406.

If you want to meet and interact with other people working on ballot access for Jill in Minnesota, you can join the Minnesota for Jill Stein Facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/MNForJillStein.
