Defend Marriage ~ one man, one woman
Chuck Baldwin, the Constitution Party nominee for President is on the ballot in 37 states in 2008. The Constitution Party made some definite progress in the area of ballot access in 2008. For example, the Constitution Party achieved ballot access in Illinois and West Virginia for the first time ever. Nevertheless, unfair ballot access laws and the exorbitant costs related to ballot access are still an obstacle for the Constitution Party in some states.
Unfortunately, Chuck Baldwin and his running mate, Darrell Castle, will not be on the ballot in California snd Arizona for the 2008 election.
There is good news however! The Baldwin/Castle ticket has qualified here as certified write-in candidates. As such a write-in vote is counted every bit as much is a vote for a candidate whose name appears on the ballot. While it is true that being on the ballot is preferable to waging a write-in campaign, write-in campaigns can make an impact. In fact, in 2006, although our Illinois party was not on the ballot, its candidate for Governor, Randy Stufflebeam conducted a vigorous, aggressive campaign for Governor and secured over 19,000 write-in votes, an Illinois state record.
With the endorsement from Representative Ron Paul, the Baldwin/Castle ticket has enjoyed increased visibility and support all over the country including states where they are not listed on the ballot. We want everyone who supports Chuck Baldwin to vote for him regardless of ballot status. Therefore, we are strongly encouraging you to not only write-in Chuck Baldwin for President, but to spread the word and encourage your friends, neighbors and relatives to do the same. Remember, a write-in vote for a certified write-in candidate counts every bit as much as one for a ballot listed candidate.
For further specific instructions relating to writing in Chuck Baldwin in your state, please find your state contact HERE.
We have a chance to secure an enormous write-in vote if voters are reminded that they have that option. Please help out by spreading the word.
Thanks for your support!
