Election 2012

Gary Johnson Makes Virginia Ballot

As do Constitution and Green Party candidates.


The state Board of Elections said today that Constitution Party presidenital nominee Virgil H. Goode Jr. and Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson have qualified for the Nov. 6 election, rejecting efforts by the state Republican Party to bar them from the Virginia ballot.

But the board voted to have the attorney general's office investigate allegations of fraud, raised by the state GOP,  in how the Constitution Party collected its signatures.

The elections board also said the Green Party nominee, Jill Stein, qualified for the ballot.
