Virgil Goode Qualifies for New Hampshire Ballot

On September 20, the New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission put Virgil Goode on the ballot. The attorney for the Secretary of State tried to persuade them not to do that. He said it would create a “bad” precedent. Goode had enough valid signatures, but some of the town clerks had not finished checking his signatures by the deadline, although they finished after the deadline. It wasn’t Goode’s fault that some of the town clerks didn’t finish the work in time.

Also, Goode had showed that some of the signatures had been improperly invalidated, but the towns had been told by the state not to re-validate those signatures. Goode’s campaign presented evidence of this and the Commissioners saw the justice in his position and voted 5-0 to put him on the ballot. Goode is now on the ballot in 26 states, which contain 48% of the Electoral College vote.

    Good for the Commissioners for doing the right thing!

  2. Is there any other state challenging signatures, not finished counting, or a state party attempting to put him on the ballot that could push him over from 48% to 50%? (not including write-ins)
