The Green Party of Philadelphia [GPOP, www.gpop.org] has begun a campaign to win support in Harrisburg for the Voters’ Choice Act, which is currently bottled up in the Pennsylvania Senate.

The Act (SB 21) will change the definition of a political party to allow participation by more parties in the electoral process.
