The Nevada Green Party filed petitions on Friday, June 3 to qualify for ballot access for the 2016 elections.
The party was required to file 5,431 signatures to qualify as a party for the ballot. The signatures will now be verified by county clerks and then sent to the state board. The Greens filed 8,520 signatures for ballot access.
Nevada will be the 22nd state where the Green Party has qualified for the November election, with 299 electoral votes – more than the total needed to win the election. This is only slightly behind the electoral votes that the Libertarian Party has qualified for so far. The Greens expect to be on nearly all states this November. Nevada was one of the states the party failed to qualify in for the 2012 election, when it was on 32 states.
