If you live in Minnesota, and plan to vote for Trump (please don’t), then you might be out of luck!
Tuesday was the deadline for non-major party candidates for President and Vice President to file the necessary paperwork to be on the ballot in Minnesota. There is no filing fee for presidential candidates, but non-major party candidates must submit a 2,000-signature petition.
According to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s website, these are the candidates who have filed to be on the ballot:
Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine, Democratic Party
Darrell Castle and Scott Bradley, Constitution Party
Dan R. Vacek and Mark Elworth, Jr., Legal Marijuana Now
Alyson Kennedy and Osborne Hart, Socialist Workers Party
Jill Stein and Ajamu Baraka, Green Party
“Rocky” Roque De La Fuente and Michael Steinberg, American Delta Party
Evan McMullin and Nathan Johnson, Independence
Gary Johnson and William Weld, Libertarian Party
Notice anyone missing? Trump/Pence is not there, as apparently, his campaign has absolutely no idea how to effectively run and manage a presidential campaign.
As of Wednesday night, it appears the Minnesota Republican Party has not yet filed the paperwork to put Trump and Pence on the Minnesota ballot. The state deadline for major party candidates to file is Aug. 29.
So basically the Legal Marijuana Now party has its sh*t together better than the republican party does.
