Comment: In OK

In reply to comment: Yeah Johnson got a raw deal (see in situ)


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.
