Americans Elect, and Justice Party, Both Notify Texas that they Intend to Petition in 2012

Published on December 28, 2011, by in General.

On December 28, both Americans Elect, and the Justice Party, filed the notice with the Texas Secretary of State saying they intend to petition to get on the 2012 ballot. Texas law does not permit this petition to start circulating until the primary is over. The Texas 2012 primary will be April 3. The petition deadline is June 17.

Other unqualified parties that had already filed the notice include the Constitution Party and the Generation Party. The Libertarian and Green Parties are already on the Texas ballot, so do not need to petition. The notice is due January 2, 2012.

    The Americans Elect, Constitution, Justice parties do not need to petition to get on the ballot. Like the Libertarian and Green parties, they do need to file their intent to nominate by convention.

    If I were to seek the Americans Elect nomination for senator, I would have (had) to file my candidacy by January 2nd (ignoring changes due to the redistricting morass). I would have had to file with the state chair of the Americans Elect party. I could not do so unless I knew that the AEP was going to nominate by convention; and who the state chair was. This information is specified on the form.

    I would probably also need to know the rules by which the AEP intended to conduct the nomination; in particular delegate selection rules so that I could gain the nomination of the party at the state convention in June.
