Jill Stein will not appear on the Georgia ballot


Richard Winger of Ballot Access News reported the following earlier today:

On August 16, the Georgia Secretary of State said that the Green Party presidential petition doesn’t have enough valid signatures. The state says only 5,925 signatures are valid. The requirement is 7,500. See this story.

This is the second time Georgia has rejected a presidential petition this year. Georgia rejected Rocky De La Fuente’s petition because he didn’t submit the names of his presidential elector candidates by July 1. De La Fuente has a lawsuit pending over whether the separate earlier deadline for presidential electors is constitutional or not.

ATPR: Stein recently was rejected from the Nevada ballot, but her campaign is suing the state over its petition deadline. Stein is set for a big night tomorrow as she and her running mate, Ajamu Baraka, are set take the stage at a live, hour-long CNN townhall at 9 PM ET.
