Libertarian Party's petition for ballot inclusion approved by Arkansas Secretary of State

Posted By on Tue, Jun 23, 2015 at 2:33 PM

The Associated Press is reporting that the Arkansas Secretary of State has approved a petition by the Libertarian Party for official recognition after organizers for the party collected more than 10,000 signatures of registered voters. 

They still must submit affidavits signed by party officers; once certified, they will be able to run candidates on the ballot in any partisan election through the 2016 election cycle. It's the third straight general election that the party has successfully petitioned statewide for ballot inclusion. If the 2016 presidential candidate gets at least 3 percent in Arkansas, the party is guaranteed recognition for the following cycle; otherwise, they'll have to go through the process again.

The description of Person 9 appears to match Robin Raveendran, the former PFH executive — and former longtime staffer at the state's Department of Human Services — who was arrested Thursday in a separate case, charged in Independence County with two felony counts of Medicaid fraud after an investigation by the state's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
