Georgia Petition Deadline Passes with No Statewide Petitions and No U.S. House Petitions

The Georgia petition deadline for minor party and independent petitions has now passed. No group or individual turned in a petition for any statewide office, and none was turned in for U.S. House either. No statewide minor party or independent petition for statewide office has succeeded in Georgia since 2000. No U.S. House petition, in a regularly-scheduled election, has succeeded in Georgia since 1964. Back in 1964, petitions were not checked, did not need to be notarized, and were not due until October of the election year.

The Libertarian Party is ballot-qualified for statewide office in Georgia, but not for district or county office. The Green Party and Constitution Party have a lawsuit pending against the presidential petition procedure.

    She didn’t turn in a petition. I could be wrong, but I think she was hoping that Roseanne Barr would contribute to her campaign, or spend independently, on paid petition gatherers.

    I guess 30 pieces of silver doesn’t buy as much as it did in Biblical Times.
