a third party candidate must collect a number of registered voter signatures equal to 5% of OK votes cast in the previous election for the office at the top of the ticket.
For instance, based on the 2012 vote where 1,334,872 votes were cast, a third party candidate would have to collect 66,744 signatures to get on the ballot.
If a party makes the ballot, the candidate must receive at least 10% of the vote for the party to remain on the ballot the following election.
They are the most stringent requirements among the states.
