New book about Prohibition Party

Source: Independent Political Report

Darcy Richardson has done it again. This time he takes us backstage for a look at the Prohibition Party in its heyday—when crowds of 10,000 people would attend rallies for their presidential candidates. This short book revolves around the 1932 election, just before the 21st Amendment was passed. Darcy details how the Prohibitionists actually had a couple of candidates officially nominated; the final one who hit the campaign trail was, in the author’s words, someone who “looked like he needed a drink.” Please Read more »

Socialist Workers Party Suffers Exclusion from the Florida Ballot Because it was Too Forthcoming

Source: Ballot Access News

The Socialist Workers Party presidential ticket is not on the Florida ballot this year, because the party said in an August 23 letter to the Florida Secretary of State that the party is not recognized by the Federal Election Commission as a “national committee.” In 2011, the Florida legislature had passed a law saying qualified parties cannot be on the ballot for President unless (1) they are recognized by the FEC as a “national committee”; (2) or, they submit a petition signed by 1% of the registered voters, Read more »

Montana Restrictive Law on Write-in Nominations Keeps Republican Off Ballot for One Partisan Statewide Race

Source: Ballot Access News

Montana voters elect a Clerk of the Supreme Court every six years, in a partisan election. The long-time incumbent, Ed Smith, a Democrat, is running for re-election this year. Generally no Republican runs for this office.

In 2006, there were three candidates on the ballot for this office: the incumbent; a Constitution Party nominee; and a Libertarian. The vote for the Constitution nominee in 2006 was 86,027 votes (24.74%), Read more »

Source: Ballot Access News

No one can know exactly how many voters will vote in each state on November 6, 2012. But if one uses the November 4, 2008 election data to estimate how many voters will vote in each state, one can calculate the percentage of voters who will see various presidential candidates on their ballots.

For Gary Johnson (assuming he is on in Pennsylvania, which is likely) the figure will be 95.08%. For Jill Stein, it is 83.10%. For Virgil Goode, it is 49.91%. Corresponding data for all presidential candidates will Read more »

The Mystery of Why the New York Independence Party Nominated No one for President

Source: Ballot Access News

Until more information appears, the question of why the New York Independence Party chose no presidential nominee for the first time will go unanswered. The New York State Board of Elections had announced that ballot-qualified parties must choose their presidential nominees by September 10. Nevertheless, the New York Independence Party state committee went ahead with a meeting on September 22, and on the agenda for that meeting was the choice of a presidential nominee. Read more »
