On June 7, the Arizona Secretary of State officially notified the Green Party that it is ballot-qualified for 2012. Although the Green Party did not poll 5% for Governor in 2010, and though it does not have two-thirds of 1% of the voters registered into the party, the party is on under a bill that passed this year. The bill says parties that petition for ballot status are on for two elections, not just one election. The Green Party had successfully petitioned in 2010 in Arizona, so it qualifies for 2012 as well. There had been some fear that the Secretary of State would rule that the 2010 petition didn’t count for 2012, but that fear is now groundless. Thanks to Leenie Halbert for this news.
