Election 2012

Gary Johnson Gains Oklahoma Ballot Access Via Americans Elect

Back in May, as Americans Elect's national organization collapsed, ballot genius Richard Winger and I wondered whether the local organizations could give their ballot lines to other candidates. After all, "Americans Elect" was legally on the ballot in nearly 30 states, and it was illegal to take them off. Would they just field no candidates? Or would enterprising third partiers take their ballot lines?

The second one.
