The signature petitions must be delivered to the State Board of Elections on Monday June 27th.

As of Tuesday we have collected 37,000 signatures, so we really need to pull out all the stops to get the remaining 8,000.

Here’s one or more ways you can help:

1) Collect signatures
Go to our volunteer page. Please be sure to check “I can help collect signatures for Jill Stein”. Then go to the petitioning page to find the Team Leader nearest you, the petition, and other resources.

2) Volunteer for data entry
To survive a challenge we have to check the signatures against the voter rolls. To volunteer for data entry email me at nwade@greenpartychicago.org.

IL Petition Mailing Deadline June 20th

We prefer that you hand-off in person your notarized Jill Stein/ILGP State Slate petitions to a regional petitioning team leader, but if you need to mail in your notarized petitions, please mail them no later than Monday June 20th to

Illinois Green Party
213 S. Wheaton Ave.
Wheaton, IL 60187

Note that if you hand off to a regional team leader you will probably be able to do so as late as Saturday, June 25th, but contact your team leader for the absolute last opportunity to hand-off.

If you go to the Chicago June 26th Help Jill Stein Get Illinois Ballot Access: Pop-Up Office on the last day to petition, you will be able to get your petitions notarized and turned in.

See the Petitioning Page for a list of team leaders.

Please DO NOT NUMBER YOUR PETITION SHEETS! They get numbered by the coordinators later.

Also, when notarizing, the name of the person who circulated the petition should be entered in the blank after "Signed and sworn to (or affirmed by)", not the name of the notary.

Thanks for all your hard work!  It's In Our Hands!

Jill Stein for President--media

In 2012, Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein received more votes for President than any other female Presidential candidate in U.S. history.

And she did that with just a tiny fraction of the attention that mainstream media gives to candidates from the corporate parties.

For news about the nationwide Jill Stein for President campaign, visit jill2016.com/news.  And please help us get her on the ballot in Illinois.

Anonymous releases message in support of Jill Stein

Anonymous has released a message urging everyone to spread the word about Jill Stein's Green Party Presidential Campaign, in the interest of an informed public.  Check it out here.

Jill Stein for President - Illinois events

Jill Stein, the Green Party's 2012 Presidential Nominee and the winner of the 2016 ILGP Presidential Preference Voting, last week brought to Illinois her message of People, Planet, and Peace Over Profits.

Dr. Stein spoke on the campus of the University of Illinois in Champaign (article), presented as a part of the ECCE Speaker Series at the University of Illinois in Springfield, interviewed with the Springfield NPR affiliate (interview audio), interviewed in Springfield with All That's Left (photo and interview audio), met with supporters at the Abraham Lincoln Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Springfield (photo), spoke with supporters on the north side of Chicago (video), and spoke at the ILGP's State Convention and Dinner in Chicago.  At the dinner, Rich Whitney surprised us with yet another demonstration of his many talents--a very humorous break from a full day of otherwise serious work (video).

Follow Dr. Stein's campaign at jill2016.com and volunteer to help her get on the ballot in Illinois!  (Petitioning starts March 29.)
