The results from the Oklahoma State Election Board's verification of the validity of signatures on the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma's ballot access petition are in. Unfortunately, the news is not good.
While approximately 58,000 signatures were submitted to the Oklahoma State Election Board by the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma, the number of signatures verified by the Election Board to be valid came in at approximately 41,000 - well short of the 51,739 signatures required.
One avenue that the Libertarian Party of Oklahoma has pursued this cycle for ballot access is through the legal system. In January, the OKLP filed a federal lawsuit against the Oklahoma State Election Board in order to seek relief from Oklahoma's stringent ballot access laws. Specifically, this lawsuit sought relief from the shortened period allowed for gathering signatures for the petition drive.
We'd like to thank everyone who came to the convention!
