Dear Fellow Patriots:

I just received notice that a donor who asked to remain anonymous has offered to donate $1,500.00 toward getting ballot access in the State of Hawaii.  The caveat is that the national party needs to match that amount in order to receive the donation.  

As you may well know, ballot access in every state is key to our success.  Each state has its own rules and regulations regarding gaining ballot status. 

Hawaii is one of the more friendly states to qualify.  The state requires the valid signatures of 750  registered voters which means that at least 1,300 signatures are needed to offset any that are disqualified by the Secretary of State's Office.  

This is very doable, but we need to act very quickly to raise the balance of the needed funds.

Besides matching those funds, we need to turn in the signatures by February 22, 2018, which is the deadline to gain ballot access in Hawaii.  We have located a very capable and dependable professional who will gather signatures for $2.00 per signatures which is a real bargain.  

He is available to work there from January 2, 2018, through January 13, 2018.  That means that we have only until the end of December 2017 to raise the matching funds.  

In all, we anticipate that the total cost will be right at $3,500.00, so in reality, we actually need to raise a total of $2,000.00.

I know that many of you have been most generous with your donations in the past and I am hesitant to again ask for your assistance, but we just cannot afford to pass up this golden opportunity.

The party is very new in Hawaii, and yet, we ran a local statewide candidate there for the first time in 2016.  Only Alaska and South Dakota gave a higher percentage of the vote to the Castle/Bradley ticket than did Hawaii. 

In fact, only 14 states gave Darrel Castle more votes than did Hawaii.

Likewise, our candidate for the US Senate in that state, Joy Allison, came in third out of five candidates. She outpolled the Libertarian candidate in every single county which is a remarkable accomplishment for a new party.

I am therefore again asking you to search deep within your soul and donate what you can immediately.  We are grateful to receive donations for $5.00, $10.00, $15.00, $20.00, $25.00, $50.00, $100.00 or more.

Every single donation is critical. Please donate online or you may simply mail your check to the Constitution Party at P O Box 1782, Lancaster, PA 17608.  Kindly designate it for ballot access.

Getting the party on the ballot in Hawaii will provide the catalyst to bolster our work of getting on the North Carolina ballot, something the party has never succeeded in doing before.

To update you, the state legislature in that state recently reduced the number of required valid signatures of registered voters from nearly 95,000 to 12,000. 

Our people there have been working diligently for about a month now gathering signatures in that state.

Once again, my sincere thanks to you for your past and current financial support to help the party grow and to gain ballot access in more states.

For God Family and Country,

National Chairman
Constitution Party
