Cheri Honkala, Green Party Nominee in Special Pennsylvania Legislative Election, Misses Deadline to be on Ballot

According to this story, Cheri Honkala, the Green Party nominee for State Representative in the upcoming special election, Pennsylvania district 197, missed the deadline to file by one day. Because the Green Party polled over 2% of the winning candidate’s vote total in 2016, the law does not require a petition for a Green Party nominee in special elections, so the deadline only concerned a declaration of candidacy.

The story also says she has raised $30,000 for her race. Also see this story.

  1. The one comment on the article (as of my writing) may put this disappointing news in perspective:

    Wow what a biased article! The paperwork was turned in on time, the SOS office said they had everything they needed then the following day they said one piece of paper was missing. That form was turned in the day it was requested! This is a case of the two parties looking for “technicalities” to limit competition!
