Libertarians say they'll qualify for ballot access in 2016

Posted By on Mon, Jun 1, 2015 at 9:01 AM

The Libertarian Party of Arkansas says it will present signatures Tuesday to the secretary of state's office sufficient to qualify the party for the ballot in Arkansas in 2016. The party has been active of late in comment on ongoing political matters. Party chair Michael Pako and Frank Gilbert, the party's candidate for governor in 2014, will speak Tuesday at a news conference.

Gilbert got 1.9 percent of the vote last year. A party must get 3 percent of the vote in the governor's race to have automatic ballot access at every level, otherwise it must gather 10,000 voter signatures.
