Green Party Wins Tucson Ballot Access Case

Ballot Access News

On July 5, a state trial court in Arizona ruled that the Green Party is ballot-qualified within the city of Tucson for the 2019 election. Arizona law says that a party that wins qualified status keeps that status for two elections. Yet Tucson election officials had said they did not think the Green Party was ballot-qualified for 2019, even though the party had earned status in the 2017 city election.
The judge wrote, “The City of Tucson and its clerk abused their discretion and acted arbitrarily and capriciously by not including the Green Party as a political party qualified for the August 27, 2019 primary election ballot.”
