Greens, Libertarians Helping Each Other
Iowa's Greens and Libertarians recently settled a court case with the secretary of state that establishes a petition procedure to become a "non-qualified party" in Iowa. Ballot Access News reports the latest: "The Iowa Green and Libertarian Parties will each circulate that type of petition for both parties. Voters are free to sign for more than one party, so this idea will save work for both parties."
Each party needs 850 signatures to become an official non-qualified party. Beginning January 1st, there will be a blank line on voter registration forms under party, and voters may fill in the name of a non-qualified party.
