The District of Columbia Board of Elections has determined that the petition for the Libertarian Party presidential nominee is sufficient and that Gary Johnson will appear on the ballot.
In 2008, Libertarian Party presidential nominee Bob Barr missed the ballot in six jurisdictions: Connecticut, the District of Columbia, Louisiana, Maine, Oklahoma, and West Virginia. Of those six jurisdictions, Johnson this year is now on the ballot in four of them. Connecticut is still checking the petition and Johnson’s ballot placement in Oklahoma will depend on the outcome of litigation involving the Oklahoma Americans Elect Party and is ability to place Johnson on the ballot. The Oklahoma lawsuit was filed on August 31.
