Green Party Candidate is Off the Ballot

And an update to a story we brought you on Monday about why mail in ballots haven’t been sent out yet. The last hurdle before a ballot could be approved by the state appears to have been resolved.

Pennsylvania’s highest court removed the Green party’s Presidential candidate,Howie Hawkins, off the November ballot.

All five Democrats on the state Supreme Court joined the majority opinion saying that a placeholder candidate faxed an affidavit of candidacy,which was not permitted.

The resolution of the case was the last thing holding up counties from getting ballots printed and mailed to registered voters who have applied for one, but it could still take a couple weeks for counties to get ballots printed by
vendors, and to start mailing them out.
