Montana election officials have determined that the independent presidential petition for Jill Stein only had 3,263 valid signatures. The law requires 5,000. Stein is the Green Party nominee, and if her petition had succeeded, she would have the label “Green” on the ballot next to her name. She had submitted approximately 6,800 signatures.
No Green Party presidential nominee has been on the ballot in Montana since 2004. The ballot-qualified parties in Montana are Democratic, Republican, Libertarian, and Americans Elect.
