Husted To Let Libertarians Put Johnson's Name On Fall Ballot
Republican Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says he intends to let Libertarians sub in their party's presidential nominee, Gary Johnson,to get him on the fall ballot. Libertarians aren't recognized as a political party in Ohio, so activists sought to collect enough signatures from voters to get Johnson on the ballot by way of a process for independent candidates. On Monday, Libertarians filed paperwork to swap Earl with Johnson. Husted says Ohio law neither openly permits nor bars the switch, but he will allow it as long as county boards of election can validate at least 5 thousand petition signatures.
