Green and Libertarian Parties Regain Qualified Status in Wisconsin

The Green Party and the Libertarian Party each have regained qualified status in Wisconsin, based on their showings for Treasurer. See this story. Parties need 1% for any statewide race for recognition. The only statewide Constitution Party nominee, Andrew Zuelke, also running for Treasurer, has 1% of the vote, according to the story. There are no election returns on the state’s elections office web page, so it will be some time before it is known if the Constitution Party nominee polled enough votes. The newspaper story rounds off, of course, so we can’t know if Zuelke polled slightly under, or slightly over, 1%.

The Libertarian Party and the Green Party went off the Wisconsin ballot after the 2010 election, when neither received as much as 1% for any statewide race.

  1. The CP had two state wide candidates on the ballot in Wisconsin.

    Andrew Zuelka ran for State Treasurer and received 1.2% of the vote.

    Jerry Broitzman ran for Secretary of State and received 1.1% of the vote.

    Although the final canvas still needs to be made, we are quite comfortable the the CP did retain ballot access in Wisconsin.
