Constitution Party publishes current ballot access map for Darrell Castle

The following is an August 5th, 2016 news release from the Constitution Party (the Constitution Party’s presidential nominee is Darrell Castle, who is, according to the Constitution Party, currently on the ballot in 20 states for a total access to 182 electoral votes):

Dear Fellow Patriots:

We have some great news to share with you!   We received word yesterday that Washington State is now ballot qualified.  Pennsylvania and West Virginia have turned in their petitions with well over the number required so they are looking good.  Iowa will finish their petitioning tomorrow and are well over the number of signatures required there.  Louisiana papers will be filed shortly.  We are simply awaiting the final paper work from committed electors. My sincere thanks to each of you for making this possible.

To be very candid, three weeks ago, things looked pretty bleak, but the past week has produced some rather inspiring miracles which have enabled us to reach the level of success we have reached thus far.

Because of this success, we moved forward to gather signatures in Ohio and should complete that next Tuesday.  The two remaining big challenges are Alabama and Virginia. Getting ballot qualified in those states is critical and that is where we urgently need your help.   As in Ohio, we needed to hire professional signature gatherers and we are being charged $3.00 per signatures.   We need at least 7,500 in Virginia to ensure that we get the 5,000 required valid signatures required for ballot access.

Time is of the essence.  Please search deep within your heart and donate whatever you can to help us raise the needed funds to put Virginia on the ballot.  Virginia is now a key state to helping us reach the 270 electoral vote level needed to win the election and thereby put us on par with the other parties in this election.

Any donation of $10,00 $25.00, $50.00, $100.00, $500.00 or more will be gratefully appreciated. Donate online here:

or send your payment to:

P O Box 1782
Lancaster, PA 17608.

Again, my sincere thanks for your generous support in this undertaking.

For God, Family, and Country

National Chairman

    Greetings, I’m a little new at all the extra ‘due process’ ick that is the current system – I’m in Indiana, and as of right now, Castle is not on the ballot – however on the map above, we are listed as “in progress” – does anyone know how things are looking for Indiana? Looking the through the Ballot Laws info is not really helpful since it appears that there are several layers of red tape to get through and no way for an outsider to get direct info on where someone is at this point?

    Again, new at this, but tired of the “lesser of evils” voting mechanism, so I’m kinda coming in late in the game here. Thanks in advance!

    The Constitution Party petition drive in Georgia failed to gather enough valid petition signatures by the deadline.

    What is the status of the Georgia drive? It’s been weeks since the state and federal parties asked for financial help to get onto the Georgia ballot. And not a word since then.

    Yeah, that ballot access map is quite inaccurate; Oregon & Idaho? Really? Plus Illinois is listed as “in progress”.
    I could possibly see Darrell breaking even with Goode… If he’s lucky.

    Darrell Castle probably will be on in Idaho.

    Virgil Goode was on in states with 264 electoral votes. A majority is 270.

    It will be close. Darrell should be on at least 25, I was hoping for more. These damn ballot access laws are a joke and part of the reason so many people don”t bother to vote anymore.

    Richard, how many electoral votes did Virgil Goode have access too? I tried to find this information on the 2012 presidential election Wikipedia article, but was unable to.

    Also, I find it interesting that the Constitution Party appears to be confident that it will be on the Oregon and Idaho ballots, when the Constitution Parties in those respective states have nominated different candidates.

  8. Andy Andy August 5, 2016

    I think Richard is right. I consider Darrell Castle to be a better candidate than Vigil Goode, but he will likely appear on less ballots than Goode.

  9. Richard Winger Richard Winger August 5, 2016

    I don’t agree that Darrell Castle in 2016 will be on the ballot in more states than Virgil Goode in 2012.

    Virgil Goode, the 2012 Constitution nominee, was on the ballot in 26 states. Looks like Darrell Castle will beat him.

    The nominees of the Libertarian, Green, and Constitution parties are all on track to be on more ballots than they were in 2012.
