Unfortunately the party petitioning window in Arkansas has already closed due to the state’s unusually early deadline. However, Howie Hawkins can still get on the ballot via an independent petition. While the independent petition will not grant statewide access for all downticket Green Party candidates, it does assure Howie a place on the ballot in November. Arkansas also allows a party designation on an indy petition, so Howie would be listed as a Green Party candidate. The independent requires 1,000 valid signatures to be submitted by August 3rd, 2020. This means we will actually need to collect closer to 2,000 raw signatures. We need volunteers to help collect petition signatures, phonebank, and organize for ballot access. To print off your petition and find our how to get started please check our Arkansas Petitioning Guide.
