In the past few days, Libertarian Party of Virginia’s (LPVA) candidates for public office have received confirmation that they will be on the November ballot.
Lindsey Bolton, candidate for House of Delegates, district 48, posted June 8th:
Great news everybody- the Board of Elections just called. We have all of our valid signatures in. WE ARE ON THE BALLOT!
Anthony Tellez, candidate for House of Delegates, district 53, posted June 7th:
I received confirmation this morning we have officially reached 125 signatures and will be on the ballot on November 5th. Thank you to everyone that helped!
Laura Delhomme, candidate for House of Delegates, district 47, posted June 6th:
We got the call today – Laura for Delegate is officially on the ballot! Thank you everyone for your hard work!!
Delhmome will be having a celebration June 11th in light of this – https://www.facebook.com/events/534755136586488/?ref=22.
Jonathan Parrish officially accepted the LPVA’s nomination for House of Delegates, district 23, June 6th. LPVA chair Chuck Moulton was in attendance. No word yet on his ballot access status.
No word yet on ballot status from House of Delegates candidates Christopher Sullivan (District 55), Dan Foster (District 78), and Patrick Hagerty (District 33). However, from the LPVA Facebook page, there is an update from LPVA gubernatorial candidate Robert Sarvis, dated June 7th:
The Sarvis for Governor campaign will wrap up its ballot drive to get Rob on the Virginia ballot this coming Tuesday (June 11), and we want to celebrate the end of this long haul with YOU!
Please join Rob Sarvis & supporters at The Robin Inn, 2601 Park Ave., in Richmond, VA. We will be there beginning at 6:00 p.m. Come celebrate this milestone with us!
RSVP via the Event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/509057079149579/
Visit http://www.robininnrva.com/ for a complete menu and more details about the restaurant.
June 11th marks the final deadline for turning in all petition signatures for the Sarvis For Governor Campaign (as well as the final deadline for all of our hard-working candidates for House of Delegates!). Last week, Sarvis campaign volunteers submitted 16,000 signatures to the State Board of Elections. On Tuesday (same day as the party at the Robin Inn), another 1,000 to 1,500 signatures will be submitted, depending on how many we can collect these last few days.
There is still time for you to help!
In case you haven’t had a chance to get the signatures of your friends, family, and coworkers, download the form here:
Gather as many signatures as you can over the weekend. On Monday, take the sheet(s) to the bank you usually do business with — most of them will usually notarize a few forms for you without charge.
As soon as you have them notarized, you may send them via FedEx or other express service to the Sarvis campaign.
You *must* send the completed forms to the Sarvis campaign overnight express — GUARANTEED BY 10:00 a.m. If it does not arrive in time for us to bring it to the Board of Elections, they won’t be in time to make the turn-in! Wouldn’t it be terrible if we only miss getting Rob on the ballot by the six or eight additional signatures you had on your petitions?
At least 10,000 signatures are needed to get on the ballot for statewide office in Virginia, but usually candidates strive to collect a minimum of twice the required number due to a large number being thrown out for various reasons. The Virginia State Board of Elections recommends collecting between 15,000- 20,000 signatures with at least 700 from each of the state’s eleven congressional districts.
