Petitioning candidates for president who filed by the July 28 New Jersey deadline are Bob Barr, Roger Calero, Gloria La Riva, Cynthia McKinney, Brian Moore, and Ralph Nader. Also someone named Jeffrey Boss of Guttenberg, New Jersey, filed under the â€œVote Hereâ€ Party label. His vice-presidential running-mate is Andrea Maria Boss.
The Constitution Party did not submit a petition, even though it is almost finished, because its members believed the petition deadline is August 11. The Constitution Party has just sent proof (by fax) that the petition form that was given to them has instructions on the front page that say the petition is due August 11. The New Jersey Elections Department has acknowledged that it made this error, and has suggested that if the petitions are submitted very quickly, they will be accepted.
The New Jersey Elections Department webpage erroneously has Gloria La Rivaâ€™s ballot label as â€œSocialism and Libertarianâ€, but the Department says that will be fixed very soon. The La Riva petition says â€œSocialism and Liberation.â€
