Joining as a member helps us in several ways. Our Supporting Members help us maintain our registration with the AEC. Financial Members dedicate resources to our projects and activities. Our Contributing Members volunteer their time, skills, or resources to the party, as a valued contribution to our goals. We recommend financial membership for those who can afford it as we do not have the backing of big business, unions, or other special interest groups. Please keep in mind that membership fees to a registered political party are tax deductible.
