•       Minor parties and independent candidates have to meet a more difficult standard to qualify for the CT Citizens’ Election Program (CT CEP). Minor parties must collect the petition signatures of 20% of the registered voters who voted in the last election for any state or state-wide office in order to qualify for a full grant. If the Green Party wanted to qualify next year for a full grant for governor of CT we would have to collect more than 218,412 valid signatures. How many signatures do our Republican and Democratic opponents have to collect under this CT CEP’s rules to get their huge grants? The answer is none. 

•       Our candidates are banned under this law from even applying for the CT CEP’s majestic and copious major party primary election grant money because minor parties and unaffiliated voters in Connecticut cannot participate in our state-sponsored and state-paid-for primaries.
