FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEAMERICANS ELECT LAUNCHES NATIONWIDE GRASSROOTS NETWORK PROJECT 500
Effort has signed more than 2,000 “Delegate Leaders” in State Senate Districts and College Campuses nationwide
WASHINGTON, D.C. Sep 19, 2011- Striving to combine the best in class grassroots organizing with the most current technology innovation, Americans Elect is launching PROJECT 500. This nationwide endeavor will utilize over 2,051 committed volunteers, at least one from every state senate district, to recruit more than one million delegates as participants in transforming the current presidential nominating process. Americans Elect is a nonpartisan nonprofit presidential nominating process founded by citizens from across the political spectrum.
The mission of Project 500 is to encourage each of the 2,051 volunteers to enroll 500 delegates. The pool of delegates will come from registered voters from all ideological backgrounds. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in discussion forums, shape the political debate, and build the platform of questions each candidate will be required to answer as part of the eventual nominating process. The Americans Elect ticket will be on the 2012 presidential ballot in all 50 states.
“To meet this goal, Project 500 leaders will work in their communities to host meet-ups and gatherings,” according to Elliot Ackerman, chief operating officer. “As part of their leadership role, they will address political and civic groups, engage college students, submit letters to editors as well as rally friends, family and neighbors to sign up and become delegates at www.AmericansElect.org.”
Americans Elect offers a second nominating process that gives the American people a choice beyond the two-party system. Through www.AmericansElect.org, any registered voter who signs up to be a delegate has the power to vote in the first-ever open and secure online nominating convention in June of 2012 that will choose a bipartisan Presidential ticket.
“Our Project 500 Leaders have joined this mission for a variety of reasons that include giving the American people a voice in the nomination process and putting Party functions back in the hands of the people. We thank them for their patriotism and commitment.” said Kellen Arno, executive director of ballot access and national field engagement.
Project 500 is designed to accommodate individual communities and gives flexibility to leaders to shape their own program. Americans Elect will provide Project 500 leaders with tools, suggestions and support to facilitate their outreach.
On campuses across America, Project 500 has also developed dedicated programs to provide students with the freedom to become leaders within Americans Elect and have a direct impact on the outcome of the nominating process.
For the last 50 years money, special interest group have bought the Presidential office. 400 of the richest Americans have more money than 150 million Americans combined. less that 2% of Americans make between $200.000 to $250,000 year, and they buy the white house. 9 out of 10 Presidential candidates with most funds and special interest groups have won the Presidential elections and over 83% of the House and Senate winners were the ones with the largest campaign funds. The White House and Congress is being bought. The irony is 72% of the middle class that makes lest than $50,000 Year let it happen. They can make a difference. How? Sign This petition to put Charles Harvey on the Presidential Ballot for 2012, Also demand that Media give equal interview time to all candidate, not just Rich and famous.

Also you have heard that the President has to be from one of the 2 parties, Democratic or Republican to have the 2 parties work together, and that an independent or Liberal could not get the 2 house to work together. Now tell me how many times you have see both parties work together. The rich and powerful only want Democrats or Republican presidents. Another question, What has any President, or Congress done great for the middle class since 1980. Please sign the this petition to put Charles Harvey on the Ballot for President 2012. Please contact CNN, all Media, John Stewart or the Steve Colbert Show to sit down and talk with me and other unknown candidates. Do yourself a favor and the Untied States of America. Thank You
