Fifteen people, mostly members of the Peace and Freedom Party of California, along with others concerned about ballot access and democracy, protested in front of the Ca. Secretary of State’s office in Sacramento on Thursday, March 24 at 11:00 a.m. The Secretary of State is not listing Jill Stein, one of four names submitted by the party for the June 7, 2016 Presidential primary ballot, and has not publicly stated any reason for this omission.

On Jan. 18, 2016, Debra Reiger, the State Chairperson of the Peace and Freedom Party of California, submitted the names of four women who have declared that they are seeking the party’s nomination for President: Dr. Lynn Kahn, Gloria LaRiva, Monica Moorehead, and Jill Stein. So far, only the first three will be listed as PFP candidates on the June primary ballot. The Secretary of State can correct this before the list is finalized on April 1.
