HUNTINGTON — The Libertarian party is finishing a month-long push to get Bob Barr on the presidential ballot. Party spokesperson Andrew Davis said they are shooting for 22,000 signatures, although just more than 15,000 are needed to pass the initiative.

Davis said Barr is on the ballot in 33 states, but they are targeting all 50 plus the District of Columbia.

Davis said there are about 40 or 50 people across the state spending the rest of the week pushing for signatures.

“We’re not asking for your vote,” Davis said. “We’re just asking for a fair chance to compete.”

The deadline for obtaining the signatures is Aug. 1.

It would have been helpful if they had said where people can go to sign the petition, but at least people will already know what’s going on if they are asked to sign one.
