Flash Candidate

the internet's answer to the search for a viable presidential candidate

How do you get the Flash Candidate on the ballot?

The only answer I can come up with would be volunteer Flash groups for each state.

I'm pretty sure you need x amount of signatures by a specific date, and every states different. This should be one of the keys to our success.   

I'll start with Mass. because I've looked into that a little already.  


General Election

In the General Election in November, other candidates, not running as party candidates, may run under a political designation (of up to three words) or without any designation.  Such non-party candidates run against those candidates nominated by the party state committees. Non-party candidates must circulate nomination papers to get their names on the ballot.* 

A non-party candidate seeking to have his or her name placed on the ballot must obtain at least 10,000 certified signatures on such nomination papers. These papers must include the names of the eleven elector candidates (who must be registered voters in Massachusetts) for each presidential candidate and vice-presidential running mate. Although only the names of the presidential and vice-presidential candidates appear on the ballot, it is the electors who cast the actual votes for president and who actually are elected in November.

Write-in candidates may also run, but only if their names and their slate of elector candidates have been filed by Friday, September 7, 2012 with the Secretary of the Commonwealth.

Spread the Word ... Flash Candidate

Sincerest apologies for the delay in adding new members to the group. Gmail has been sending the requests to my spam folder. Welcome aboard. 33 Days to the election, one day to the first presidential debates. Has the window closed on our opportunity? Do big money interests win again? Or is there still a chance for something like this to work? I thought back in April, when I created this site, it would take off in a flash. Everyone I talk to doesn't seem to believe in Romney or Obama. I…



With new technology we have figured out ways to create instant participation, flash mobs, can we extend this new phenomenon to a candidate?
