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.
