Party Recognition Petition

posted Feb 24, 2017, 11:31 AM by Aaron Fowles   [ updated Feb 24, 2017, 11:34 AM ]
The Green Party of Tennessee is pursuing official recognition by the state of Tennessee.  This requires a petition and, according to current law, about 37,000 signatures.  There is, however, a bill in the legislature now that would lower that requirement to 5,000 signatures.  So, right now, contact your state representative and tell them to support HB0662 and your state senator to support SB0770.

Afterwards, download one of the files at the bottom of this page.  GPTNPARTYRECOGNITION is for any county in Tennessee and GPTNPARTYRECOGNITIONSHELBYCOUNTY is just for, you guessed it, Shelby County.  For each page of the petition, all signatures must be of registered voters from the same county.  Pay close attention to the lines and make sure all signatures are legible.  This is not the time to practice your calligraphy.  Both the signed name and the printed name must be legible, as must be the addresses.  Notice the second address line is City/COUNTY/Zip.

Don't worry about the Page ______ of _______ stuff.  We'll take care of that when we have all the pages in.

Here's an example.



When you have your signatures, send me an email at info@greenpartyofshelbycounty.org and I'll let you know the next steps.

You don't need to fill out the whole page, though that'd be great.  If you can only get a few signatures, or even one, that's fine.
