Alabama Libertarian Party Begins 2022 Party Petition

Ballot Access News

Alabama requires a petition of 3% of the last gubernatorial vote for a new or previously unqualified party, or a non-presidential statewide independent, to get on the ballot. No one has completed a statewide 3% Alabama petition since 2000, except that Americans Elect did the petition in 2011 but then didn’t run any candidates.

For 2020 and 2022, the petition is 51,588 signatures. The Alabama Libertarian Party has just begun to circulate that petition for the 2022 election. It is due in May 2022.

No other state requires such a high percentage of signatures for statewide non-presidential ballot access, if each state is compared using its easiest method (party or independent).
