Jill Stein Gains Ballot Access In Nebraska & Minnesota

Jill Stein is now on the ballot in 47 states.  The latest being Minnesota and Nebraska.  In Nerbraska she will be listed as a non-party affiliated petition candidate.  In Minnesota, Ajamu Baraka will not be on the ballot for Vice President because of red tape.  The Minnesota Green Party released a statement:

Last week the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office reported that the Jill Stein for President campaign (jill2016.com) petition has met the necessary requirements to place Jill Stein on the ballot in Minnesota as the Green Party presidential candidate.

Because the state required that both presidential and vice presidential candidates be recorded on the petition before gathering signatures, a stand-in for vice president was necessary despite the petitioning process beginning several months before the party’s presidential nominating convention. We believe the current inability to substitute our stand-in for our endorsed candidate is unfair in light of the arduous and time consuming ballot access process.
