Angus King Submits 5,800 Signatures to be on Maine November Ballot for U.S. Senate

On May 29, Angus King submitted 5,800 signatures so as to appear on the November 2012 ballot in Maine as an independent candidate for U.S. Senate. He needs 4,000. The law does not permit him to submit more than 6,000. See this story.

    After the Mich McCotter fiasco, will the MORON States increase the upper limit for petition signatures ???

    Stay tuned.

    VALID petition signatures = the New Age WAR ammo ??? Duh.

  3. “He needs 4,000. The law does not permit him to submit more than 6,000.”

    Does this law apply to candidates for President?

  4. #3, yes. But it doesn’t bar more signatures from being in to the town clerks, just to the Secretary of State.

    From the linked article, “Independent candidates have until Friday at 5 p.m. to submit at least 4,000 signatures.”

    Does this mean that any independents wishing to run for a congressional seat in 2014 face a deadline this Friday, June 1, 2012? For an election that occurs in November 2013?

    #6, the deadline mentioned in the newspaper story is for the November 2012 election.
