North Dakota LP regains ballot access

The North Dakota Libertarian Party regained party status, and will appear on the ballot for the 2020 elections.

North Dakota Secretary of State Al Jaeger on Wednesday said the party had filed petitions on October 16 that resulted in enough qualified signatures to recognize the party as a political organization.

The party needed 7,000 qualified signatures of North Dakota registered voters submitted by April 6 to regain its ballot status. Jaeger said the party submitted 8,113 signatures, of which 7,735 were qualified.

To retain party status, the 2020 candidate for President or Governor must get at least 5% of the vote.

The Libertarian Party’s 2020 presidential nominee is now on the ballot in 34 states plus the District of Columbia. Click here to view the ballot access map.
