Support the VOTERS' CHOICE ACT
Our Democracy depends on it!
Ballot access ensures the right of candidates from third parties to appear on your ballot, giving you the opportunity to vote for the candidate of your choice.
The Voters' Choice Act would level the playing field for independent and third party candidates, making elections free and equal for all parties, giving Pennsylvania voters greater choice on Election Day.
The Pennsylvania Ballot Access Coalition, formed in 2005, is comprised of the Constitution Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party, Prohibition Party, Reform Party, and Socialist Party. The goals of ballot access reform include allowing any party that achieves a minimum of 0.5% of the vote, as in the Delaware Model, the status of a Minor Party and eligibility to appear on the ballot.
Currently, the requirements for third parties in Pennsylvania are much more difficult than for the two major parties, in order to even have a presence on the ballot, for voters to be able to vote third party.Ballot Access News across the country: Ballot Access is a nationwide issue!
