On September 4th after a last minute attempt by the Virginia GOP to knock the Libertarian candidate off the ballot, the State Board of Elections certified that the Libertarian Party of Virginia properly submitted all required documentation.
Therefore, Libertarian for president Governor Gary Johnson will be on the ballot in Virginia.
The Republicans are at it again. They're challenging the signatures of Virginia Libertarians, despite the fact that they turned in 16,398 petition signatures, more than 12,249 of which are likely valid based on conservative estimates. Only 10,000 are required to make the ballot.
Republicans are hoping to knock Libertarian presidential candidate Gov. Gary Johnson and his vice presidential running mate Judge Jim Gray off the ballot and deny voters a choice. The challenge is viewed as frivolous.
With the addition of New York, Libertarians Governor Gary Johnson and Judge James P. Gray are now on the ballots in 41 states.
They will also be on the ballot in the District of Columbia, along with Bruce Majors, who is running for Delegate to the US House of Representatives. If either Gov. Gary Johnson or Mr. Majors receives 7,500 votes in the district, ballot access will be retained there for 2 years. The Libertarian Party has never attained full ballot access in the District of Columbia.
Petitions are due next week in Alabama, Kentucky, and Rhode Island.
Governor Gary Johnson and Judge Jim Gray are now on 40 state ballots for the November elections, as Maryland and Massachusetts were added to the list today.
Petitioning is still going on in 3 states: Alabama, Kentucky, and Rhode Island. The petitions are due the first full week in September.
Signatures are being validated in 5 states: Connecticut, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia. Also waiting on validation in the District of Columbia. Litigation to get our candidates on the ballot is taking place in Michigan and Oklahoma.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
