Richard Winger has reported on the latest ballot access news out of Washington, which is that six presidential tickets have submitted signatures in the state of Washington, with four having been verified so far.
The deadline has passed in Washington state for minor party presidential candidates, and independent presidential candidates, to submit petitions. Already confirmed for the ballot are Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party, James Harris of the Socialist Workers Party, Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, and Peta Lindsay of the Party for Socialism and Liberation. The state still hasn’t checked the petitions for Jill Stein of the Green Party and Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party.
Goode’s and Stein’s campaigns are not expecting any issues with their confirmation for the ballot in Washington.
