New York Working Families Party Nominates Joe Biden

Ballot Access News

On August 11, the New York Working Families Party nominated Joe Biden for president. This means he will be on the New York ballot twice, and voters can vote for him either as a Democrat or as a Working Families Party candidate.

In 2016, when the WFP nominated Hillary Clinton in New York, the party polled 139,840 votes for her, which was 1.83%.

The April 2020 new law on party status requires the greater of 130,000 votes, or 2%. So unless the new law is eventually declared unconstitutional, it is tough to predict whether the WFP can meet the new standard later this year.
