Socialist Party Tells Maine Secretary of State to Tally its Registrants

Ballot Access News

The Socialist Party has filed a document with the Maine Secretary of State, saying the party intends to qualify as a party. Therefore, election officials will allow voters to register into the Socialist Party, to see if it can obtain at least 5,000 registrants by January 2020, the deadline. The Libertarian Party has also filed the notice. The Libertarian Party hopes to file a lawsuit soon to regain its 5,500 registrants that were converted to independents earlier this month. If the party had its registrants back, it would meet the threshold to be a new party again.
