Ballot Access is Not Cheap!
California’s undemocratic election regulations make it very difficult for independant and third party candidates to run for state office. For a candidate to even get access to the ballot they need to either gather 7,000 signatures within a short time frame, pay a $3,916.12 filing fee, or submit a combination of signatures and money.
This election cycle, the regulations changed. The allotted period of time for gathering petition signatures was moved up to mid-December from early January. Due to the difficulty of obtaining signatures during the holiday period when many people are busy and travelling, this change effectively shaved off two weeks of time for gathering the required signatures. While the corporate-supported Republican and Democratic candidates have no trouble filing the nearly $4,000 fee for Governor, that is a lot of money for someone on a fixed income!
Volunteers are hitting the streets and gathering signatures for Gloria La Riva’s grassroots campaign, but with your help we can raise funds towards the filing fee and running an independent campaign calling for Jobs, Housing and Healthcare for All!
