From Richard Winger at Ballot Access News:
On September 21, the Modern Whig Party informed Michigan’s Secretary of State that it is about to start collecting signatures on a petition to be on the 2016 ballot. Michigan lets petitioning groups set their own petitioning period, but the job must be done in six months. So now the Modern Whig Party must collect 31,519 signatures by March 18, 2016. Thanks to John Wilhelm for this news.
