Green Party nominee Richard Carroll, beats back legal challenge, remains the only name on the ballot for Arkansas legislative seat

From Ballot Access News

October 27th, 2008

On October 27, the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled that Dwayne Dobbins should not be on the November ballot as the Democratic nominee for state rep. Dobbins v Arkansas Democratic Party, 08-1225. The Court did not reach the merits, but said he had waited too long to complaint, and that he should have objected within 20 days after the party ruled against him. He filed his lawsuit on October 10. Here is the 5-page decision.

This news means that the Green Party nominee, Richard Carroll, is the only name on the ballot, although two write-in candidates are running against him.

    I wanted the Democrat to be on the ballot to see if the voters would still pick the big party in spite of the “negative publicity”… but hey, the Greens should take what they can get!
