Insurance Commissioner Vote saves Peace & Freedom Party

Under California law, a party needs to poll at least 2% for one of its candidates for statewide Constitutional office to retain ballot status. In 1998 the Peace & Freedom Party lost ballot status when it failed to poll 2% for any of its nominees.

A voter registration drive restored the Peace & Freedom Party to the ballot, and it has run candidates in recent elections. This year, the only PFP candidate to beat the 2% requirement was Dina Padilla, running for Insurance Commissioner. Ms Padilla has so far received 262,641 votes, for 3% of the total. The vote for Ms Padilla has kept the Peace & Freedom Party on the ballot for four more years.
