New York State Third Party Candidates Listing & Political Commentary Blog

Now In Our 11th Year

Publicity Breeds Name Recognition ==> Name Recognition Breeds Name Familiarity ==>Name Familiarity Breeds Votes

The Mainstream Media would do well to remember this when they tell you that they don't want to cover a third party candidate because he/she can't win. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy!

This site is intended to do the following:

2014 Races:

PLEASE NOTE: This is an important year in the New York State election cycle. All parties wishing to obtain automatic ballot status for the next four years must obtain at least 50,000 votes in this year's Governor's race. If you are not registered to vote, please register and consider voting for a candidate that is listed on this website. (The finalized candidate listing will be put on here at the end of August.) Guaranteeing ballot access for the so called third parties is the only way to break the gridlock that the Republicans and Democrats have thrust upon us.


If you would like to help the third parties collect signatures, or sign a petition to help get them on the ballot, please click on the following links:
