Re-open the Nomination Process for Americans Elect

    1. Petition by

      Americans of Americans Elect

The Board of Americans Elect has unilaterally decided to suspend Americans Elect operations and the presidential nomination process. Delegates, per Rule 12.2 of the bylaws, have requested a reversal vote on the AE website in which all delegates may participate. This specific request was initially submitted on May 20, 2012, however, AE's board has yet to respond. In addition, AE's Board has chosen to ignore other previous communication from delegates, candidates, and groups like Americans of Americans Elect. This reversal vote will allow for the delegates of AE to have their rightful say on the future of Americans Elect under Rule 12.2.


This is democracy in its purest form, and needs all of our support. Help us in empowering your voice. Support the true Americans of Americans Elect today!

      I got involved because of the goals and idea of AE, not because of a single election cycle. I want my contribution of time and talent to mean something going forward.

      The process should not have been shut down. The rules that were stupid should have been dropped. Please prove that you weren't scamming all along to try and shut down the 3rd party process, and finish what you started.

      Obtaining ballot access (for anyone other than top Democratic & Republican nominees) is outrageously complicated. It is imperative for the American people to be able to vote for their choice and not the "worst of two evils". If AE gives up now, it will be disastrous for us all.

      Because the country is in desperate need for a third candidate.

      I spent time keeping up on the site and the news only to have the process pulled from underneath me.
