Election day is almost here, and against all odds, our movement for an America that works for all of us keeps growing.
And we can still win: whether we win the White House, win 5% of the popular vote and $10 million in public funding, or just win ballot lines in states across America so we can keep building a people’s party from the grassroots up.
We’ve come so far together – can you do one more thing to help us win?
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper.
Believe it or not – every letter can reach thousands of people and make a big difference.
When people in your community read your letter, cutting through all the propaganda and fear to show them they’re not alone in wanting something better, it could give hundreds, even thousands of your neighbors the courage to vote Green for the first time.
The corporate media is working overtime to marginalize us. They want you to think that you’re powerless, because their greatest fear is that we’ll build an independent party that doesn’t take marching orders from the 1%.
That’s why it’s so important that we do everything we can to reach 5% or more. A recent CBS/NY Times poll had us at 4% nationally – and these polls are known for undercounting young people, independents and low-income voters, our strongest supporters.
We are close. But we need to get out the message to as many people as we can: every Green vote counts.
If just one of every ten people reading this takes action, together we’ll send thousands of letters and reach millions of people.
Will you step up and take action when it matters most?
It doesn’t take long to write a letter, and you’ll be glad you did knowing you did everything you could to get every vote for Jill and Ajamu.

After all the hard work put in by Jill, Ajamu, and every single person who’s put their time, money, energy and heart into this campaign, let’s finish as strong as we can.
It’s in our hands!

PS. Want to get every single Green vote you can? Here are more actions you can take in the next few days to help build the Green Party into the new major party that 57% of Americans are clamoring for!
Over 4,300 of Jill’s supporters cast their ballot in the Why I’m Voting Green poll! Using the ranked-choice voting method, we had 8 rounds of votes calculated and redistributed until we found our winner — the candidate that got over 50% of the votes.* See our first and last round below:

So what was Stein/Baraka supporters’ top reason to Vote Green?
“I want to vote for a party with principles and policies I believe in”
What does that tell us? It tells us that Greens are taking democracy back into their hands by voting FOR something — and someone — they believe in, rather than playing into the two-party trap and voting AGAINST a candidate they dislike. Thank you for standing up with us!
