Green Party Lobbies For Voters’ Choice
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. At the present time, political parties other than Democrats and Republicans are frequently excluded from the ballot by onerous rules. The result is citizens are deprived of the opportunity to vote for third-party candidates because their names are so difficult to get on the ballot.
