Why this petition matters
Purpose: To eliminate private political influence and control upon the basic rights of Alaskans to participate equally in the public process of elections.
Did You Know…
…that Our elections in Alaska are 100% controlled by private corporate entities called political parties?
…that the Constitution of the State of Alaska makes absolutely no mention of political parties?
… that the statutes also require private citizens that organize to influence one another or volunteer to serve the public to become a statutorily defined entity that has to ask for permission to participate in a public process set forth by the Constitution?
We propose that this be addressed by either having a state legislator introduce a bill to eliminate ballot access thresholds for organized political groups and petitioning requirements or We can go through the process to ask the government’s permission to exercise Our first amendment right “…to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
We propose that all primary elections to choose a general ballot candidate be entirely funded and operated by recognized political entities with the results being submitted to the Division of Elections.
We propose that the definition of organized political groups be simplified to include any and all entities that file a simple form with 49 signatures of registered voters. These entities will be required to file no later than Alaska Day the year prior to an election and must renew with 49 signatures every 2 years after that.
We base these proposals on this:
The Constitution of the State of Alaska
