Why should I sign a nomination form?
In NH, the Republicans and Democrats have held the office of Governor since 1857 when Ralph Metcalf, a member of the Know Nothing party left office.
The last time a Governor of no party was in office were our first two Governors, Governors Weare and Langdon from 1776 through 1786. They were the ones who helped America become what it is today. NH was the first to declare independence from England. NH was the first to have a State Constitution. These two men agreed with George Washington that party politics only succeed in dividing the country up, not pulling it together. Jilletta agrees with this statement….look at the presidential rally problems of today!
Today in our state though it takes a $100 administration fee and the name Republican or Democrat on your paperwork to allow you on the ballot. If you are an independent, like our forefathers who created this state and helped shape this country, you must find 3000 registered voters to sign a nomination form as well as pay your $100 (which you don’t get back if you don’t get the signatures). These signatures allow you to actually campaign and run for office. Independents need permission from at least 3000 people just to go through the effort of supporting and serving their state.
Jilletta promises that if she is able to get in to office, she will work to make it easier for future independents to get on the ballot. Each person must still earn their own votes, but a government for the people by the people must actually be open to the people to be by them.
Please sign a nomination form today so that Jilletta Jarvis can work to earn your vote on November 8th this year.
