MANCHESTER, NH, JANUARY 5, 2012-- Americans Elect, a nonprofit organization providing American voters with an alternative way to nominate a presidential candidate, begins its “Crash the Party” Tour this Saturday, January 7, in Manchester, NH.
Americans Elect will be in New Hampshire through primary night holding Meetups, attending debates and asking Americans if they are satisfied with the way the parties nominate candidates.
>From New Hampshire, Americans Elect will travel down the East Coast, visiting other early primary states such as South Carolina and Florida, stopping along the way in Warwick, Boston, Philadelphia, and Richmond to sign up delegates and spread the word that Americans Elect offers all voters the ability to nominate a serious third choice for president, regardless of party affliation.
“Just as the traditional political system is closing down the field, we are opening it wide up with more choices,” said Elliot Ackerman, Americans Elect’s Chief Operating Officer. “We’re giving every American voter the opportunity to choose a serious third ticket that transcends party lines.”
