The Missouri petition deadline for newly-qualifying parties and independent candidates has passed, and no statewide petitions were submitted this year. The biggest office for which a petition was submitted was U.S. House. This means that the only presidential candidates who will be on the November ballot are the nominees of the Democratic, Republican, Constitution, and Libertarian Parties.
The statewide petition requirement is 10,000 signatures. Although Americans Elect collected signatures in Missouri, those signatures were never turned in. The Green Party last petitioned successfully in Missouri statewide in 2006. Thanks to Ken Bush for this news. Presidential candidates who didn’t get on the ballot are free to be declared write-in candidates and their votes will be tallied.
