Double your Green for Jill Stein

Most of the states that are currently in the lead are there because they have actively raised funds for the campaign. They've held house parties. They've sent out fundraising appeals. That's all it takes.

It's not hard. And there is a real urgency to putting your state over the top:

  1. We need matching funds so that we can get on the ballot across the country. The average ballot access campaign costs $2000 to $5000 to run. The toughest states will cost many times that. 
  2. Every day that goes by without the Green alternative on the ballot is another day of fake debate between Wall Street and Wall Street Lite. 
  3. It will take weeks for the Federal Election Commission to process our matching funds application. Every delay could result in missing a ballot access opportunity in a new state. 
  4. June 30th is the deadline. It's that simple.

Please take an immediate step by making a donation: http://www.jillstein.org/donateEven if your state is not in the top 25, once we qualify, your donations will also be matched, dollar-for-dollar, up to $250.
