Nall & Libertarians Launch Ballot Access Drive
I, in conjunction with the Libertarian Party of Alabama, have launched a major ballot access drive via the internet. As your candidate for Governor of this state I am asking that each of you print out the ballot access form on this page and fax it to us at the LPHQ in Birmingham.
If you have sent me your signatures in the past please do so again via this method.
Instructions are included at the linked ballot access petition below.
If you are a supporter of my campaign and have a website or friends with websites in Alabama please ask them to post this and get their friends, co-workers and family members to sign it.
We have until June 6, 2006 to collect the 41,000 + signatures needed to get my name on the ballot for November. Time is critical.
Alabama's politicians have kept Loretta Nall off the ballot.
YOU CAN PUT HER ON THE BALLOT.
All you have to do is print out and sign this Petition
Then fax or mail it to the Libertarian Party -- we will take it from there.

Alabama's politicians think that they have crafted election laws
to keep any third parties off the ballot and to silence any competing
voices. That is one of the reasons our political process is in such bad shape. Without competition new growth and progress are stifled.
YOU CAN SAY NO TO THEM.
Alabama's ballot access requirements are the most restrictive in
the country. Access to the ballot depends on whether or not you are a member of one of the two major parties . If you are, you get on it. If not, you only get on the ballot if you first collect 41,300 signatures - an amount equal to three percent of the voters in the last election. Oh, and you only get to be a party if your group received at least twenty percent of the votes in the last election.
So you don't get to be a party without the votes, but you don't get the votes unless you get on the ballot and you don't get on the ballot without the signatures.
The result? You and I only get to vote for state-sanctioned candidates. You may disagree with my positions but surely everyone should have the right to voice their opinion at the ballot box. Even if you dislike me with a passion your elected officials are denying you the right to even vote against me.
Ballot restrictors will respond that too many candidates' makes for a confusing ballot and an inefficient election process. Maybe so, but are Alabamians so dumb that they cannot figure out the ballot? Do we really need that much handholding from the state? And - to borrow an overused phrase - should concerns about bureaucratic inefficiency trump the citizen's right to deliver an 'up or down vote' on a candidate?
YOU CAN TELL THEM THEY ARE NOT SAFE.
Are you concerned about the unbridled growth and influence of
the government in Montgomery? Do you think marijuana laws are
absurd? Do you want to send a message to the politicians in
Montgomery that change is coming?
YOU DO HAVE A VOICE.
And this is it. We have until June 6 to gather the required signatures.
Time is of the essence. If you can get more signatures -- your roommate,
a co-worker, a neighbor -- you can make a difference. If you
run a web site or have a blog, link to this page. But most of all
if YOU want to strike a blow for freedom, send to us your ballot
MAKE A DIFFERENCE FOR FREEDOM.
