Arkansas Green Party Polled Over 40% for State Treasurer in 13 Counties in November 2010

From Ballot Access News:

At the November 2, 2010 election, the Arkansas Treasurer’s race had only two candidates on the ballot, Democrat Martha Shoffner, and Green Party nominee Bobby Tullis. Tullis polled over 40% of the vote in thirteen counties. His highest percentages were in Baxter County (45.01%) and Howard County (46.57%).

Statewide, the Green Party polled 32.46% in this race. That is the highest percentage for a statewide minor party nominee in Arkansas since 1968, when George Wallace carried the state for President on the American Party line, with 38.65%.

Yet the state is still arguing in court (in the 8th circuit) that the Green Party does not have enough voter support to be on the ballot automatically for 2012, and that the party must submit yet another petition of 10,000 names, if it wants to be on the 2012 ballot.

    Redunkulous.
