Vote Tomorrow -- Vote Green, Peace and Freedom, anyone but D or R (2012 Green Voter Guide)

The strongest message you can send is to register for any other party but the corporate owned parties. Simply not registering and not voting, at this point, only concentrates power in the hands of the few who do vote.

The Green Party does not take corporate money (unlike the Democrats and the Republicans). When you register with the Green Party, it shows that you oppose the influence that the corporations have on our political system. The more people who register Green, the stronger is the message that we send.

You will need to re-register to vote when:

You move to a new permanent residence
You change your name
You change your political party choice

As a California voter, you should be aware that in some areas, local elections are held on dates that do not coincide with statewide election dates. The 15-day close of registration deadline for these local elections varies depending on the actual date of the election. If you need to know a deadline for a local election, contact your county elections office.

If you haven't already, you can register to vote (for next election, in Nov) here:

If you are registered, congratulations, you still have the ability to write-in candidates -- that will soon be gone . . . or check with the Greens, Peace and Freedom and other third parties for their recommendations.
