Green Party sues for ballot access

Posted By on Thu, Aug 27, 2009 at 11:50 AM

Who knew? Secretary of State Charlie Daniels has denied the Green Party access to the 2010 ballot because its presidential candidate did not get 3 percent of the vote for president in Arkansas in 2008. Several other candidates got well more than 3 percent and the Green Party elected a state representative, who later switched to the Democratic Party.

The ACLU is suing Daniels. Here a copy of the federal lawsuit.

Maybe the Republican Party wants to join this action since they currently lack a gubernatorial candidate for 2010.
