According to an article on TalkBusiness.net, there is a chance that after the next race for governor in Arkanas, the only ballot qualified parties in the state will be the Green Party and the majority Democratic Party. There is currently an extremely popular Democratic governor who will be up for reelection, and the Arkansas Republicans are having trouble finding a candidate to run against him. It takes getting three percent or more of the vote for governor for a party to stay on the ballot. In the somewhat unlikely event that the Republicans didn’t field a candidate, it would probably be a Green against a Democrat, with the ultimate outcome being that these would be the only two remaining ballot qualified parties.
Arkansas law defines a political party as a group of voters that poll at least 3% of the entire votes cast for Governor or President, depending on the election cycle. If they fail to get 3%, they no longer are recognized as a political party. If they fail to field a candidate for Governor and the Green Party does, it could usurp the GOP’s status as the minority party.
