Americans Elect Submits Gov. Gary Johnson To Oklahoma Presidential Ballot

August 8, 2012, Santa Fe, NM — The nonpartisan organization Americans Elect has submitted the names of presidential electors to the Oklahoma State Board of Elections who have pledged to support former New Mexico Governor and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson for President and Judge Jim Gray for Vice President. The nomination by Americans Elect ensures that Gov. Johnson’s name will be on the November ballot in Oklahoma.

Due to ongoing litigation over ballot access, Gov. Johnson’s inclusion on the presidential ballot in Oklahoma was otherwise in dispute.

Applauding Americans Elect’s action, Johnson said, “It is vital that voters in every state have real choices in November, choices that are not narrowed down for them by the two so-called major parties. That is why I am running, and that is what I believe Americans Elect is about. The Americans Elect Oklahoma party deserves tremendous credit for making certain that voters in Oklahoma will not be held hostage by arbitrary ballot access rules designed to limit their choices.

Perhaps I'm miss-reading the posts here

but it looks like most are cheering the two party (that is - 'single' party) system on and do not want ANY third party candidate.

First - Gary Johnson is very unlikely to win.
Second - Giving his party a vote could allow more freedom on next election.
Third - None of the parties have Ron Paul as their candidate.
Fourth - it doesn't make any difference anyway, the ptb will put who they want in the white house.

This ain't the united States of America of 1776!

Maybe if Hitler, or Stalin were on the Repub/Demo ballots they would be happier? (and I bet the media could make them look like angels!)

When ever i see a johnson post

Seems GJ may be tossed off Michigan ballot for sore loser laws, being he was campaigning in the GOP before he dropped to run LP.

I thought the libertarian

I thought the libertarian party made it on all the ballots?

...

No.
and there are other ballots he will not be on as well.

The Gj supporter lies and spins to get the 5 mins.

but the time is UP.

Gj has run a broke campaign and has little support and even less money.
He will leave the stage owing millions to unsuspecting staffers and small business/venue owners who took a chance fronting the Gj campaign and they will be owed millions when its all over. No different then Newt, Bachmann, Cain, Perry, and Pee Paw.
Newt owes $6m!!!lol never will be paid back...
This is something dr. Paul would NEVER do, run a campaign in debt.
Paul is smart enough to know this is a LOSING strategy, and ultimately hurts innocent Americans who invested expecting payback.

Paul would consider running a campaign in debt, DISGRACEFUL

"OH NO! He has a SON?" Neoconservatives and Liberals EVERYWHERE!

Oklahoma has the most restrictive ballot access laws...

in the nation. FROM WIKIPEDIA

"Oklahoma: A party is defined either as a group that polled 10% for the office at the top of the ticket in the last election (i.e., president or governor), or that submits a petition signed by voters equal to 5% of the last vote cast for the office at the top of the ticket. An independent presidential candidate, or the presidential candidate of an unqualified party, may get on the ballot with a petition of 3% of the last presidential vote. Oklahoma is the only state in the nation in which an independent presidential candidate, or the presidential candidate of a new or previously unqualified party, needs support from more than 2% of the last vote cast to get on the ballot."

I thought they shut that thang down.

Did they crop back up just for Gary Johnson?

And that should tell you

all you need to know about GJ.

No, this just tells me the average IQ at the DAILY PAUL...

has not risen since Jesse Benton, Jack Hunter et. al. sold us out. I argued that placing Ron Paul's name with AMERICANS ELECT would GUARANTEE Ron Paul was on the ballot in all 50 states, but got shouted off this site by those saying, "trust the campaign". That certainly has worked out, has it not?

You still don't get what AE is really all about.

AE was always the point of the dispute. And, no, AE would have never put Paul on their ballot. NEVER. Not even if he had gotten 100% of the vote from the people. Those who are behind AE reserved the final say for themselves, just in case.

BTW, my IQ is higher than the minimum required for MENSA.
