Green Party Submits Alaska Petition

On August 8, the Green Party of Alaska is submitting approximately 4,500 signatures, to obtain “Limited Political Party” status in Alaska. The requirement is 3,273 valid signatures. “Limited political status” means a party is qualified only for the limited purpose of placing its presidential and vice-presidential nominees on the ballot.

Assuming the petition is valid, this will be the first time since 2006 that the Green Party has had any nominees on the ballot in Alaska. The party was ballot-qualified for all office in the past, but didn’t poll enough votes to remain on the ballot in 2006, and did not appear on the ballot for president in 2008.

  1. The GP definitely seems to be more energized this season vs. in ’08 (i’m sure it was hard to get excited about McKinney).

  2. @1 Yeah, GP seems to be a lot more excited about Stein and are also riding some of the tide from Occupy Wall Street (even though OWS has descended into chaos). Also, they have a possibly more receptive audience b/c of four years of Obama not necessarily delivering what leftists want. Still, GP will probably not get more than one-half of one percent of the vote, if even that.

  3. They’ve got to be counted first
