For president of the United States of America: Write in Dick Gregory President, Mark Lane Vice President / One Vote [leaflet imitating a dollar bill]

n.p. The Independents of America [Gregory Campaign], 1968. Leaflet similar in size to a dollar bill, with Dick Gregory's portrait replacing Washington's and some altered text; appears to have been collaged then photocopied; closed tear at top edge. "In God we hope / One man one vote."

Gregory tried to run as the Peace and Freedom Party candidate, but after the nominating convention chose Eldridge Cleaver over him as the national candidate, he still ran a write-in campaign in several states, and in fact garnered more votes than Cleaver.
