Why become a PFP County Central Committee Member?
There are at least two great reasons why you should become a member of your Peace and Freedom Party (PFP) County Central Committee. As an elected member of your county’s Central Committee you will have a vote in deciding who will be our Presidential candidate for the 2020 Presidential Election. Every elected County Central Committee member is automatically a member of the State Central Committee and becomes an official delegate to our Presidential Nominating Convention in August 2020.

Also, as an elected member of your County Central Committee you can be a Peace and Freedom Party activist in your area, help decide on local PFP events and issues, participate in local actions, and help your county become a better place for everyone. And as a member of the State Central Committee you can help shape the actions and direction of the Peace and Freedom Party.

Join your friends and comrades - become a candidate for your county PFP Central Committee.

How to become a candidate

First, you must have been a registered Peace and Freedom Party (PFP) voter for at least 30 days before you can file nomination papers to become a County Central Committee member. Then:

  1. You will need to take out Declaration of Candidacy papers at your county Registrar of Voters. There is no fee to run for County Central Committee. The beginning date for doing this is September 27, 2019. The registrar will go over the whole process with you. You must complete everything by December 6, 2019.
  2. You will need to get the signatures of a number of Peace and Freedom Party registrants. These people are not committing to vote for you, just helping you become a candidate. The number of valid signatures will vary with each county and/or district but will be 20 or fewer, and you can sign your own papers.
  3. These people must be registered Peace and Freedom Party voters in your district or county, but you can register new people with the party before they sign your papers. If you do this, please make a copy of their registration (and/or make a note of their registration form number) so that you can turn it in at the same time you submit your papers. New registrants may not be in the county’s system yet and may be rejected, so show them the copy of the new registration.
  4. If there are other PFP candidates for central committee in your area you can have up to three candidates on one signature petition. This simplifies signature gathering since each of you can get signatures for all three.
  5. Try hard to make sure you have only registered PFP voters sign your papers. There is a limit of 40 signatures and if you have too many bad signatures you may not qualify.
  6. Petition signers cannot sign for more candidates than there are seats in your district or county.

If you have more questions about being a candidate, or about the election process, contact your county’s Registrar of Voters or the Peace and Freedom Party at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

In California, voter registration is very important to political parties. The very existence of a political party as “ballot-qualified” is determined by the number of votes its statewide candidates receive or by the number of voters registered with the party. As the only feminist socialist political party on the California ballot, it is imperative that the Peace and Freedom Party continues as a qualified party.

Quite simply, the Peace and Freedom Party will not be able to provide Californians with candidates that will represent us unless we register and vote Peace and Freedom.

For all the information you need on registering to vote, visit the California Secretary of State's homepage at SOS.Ca.gov or just click here.

Thank you for registering Peace and freedom Party, and thank you for your vote!
