On Friday, August 15, the Bob Barr campaign attempted to have the Secretary of State authorize local clerks accept late filings of signatures. Don Cookson of the Secretary of State’s office indicated that there is no provision to authorize such a late filing.
The signatures filed by the August 8 deadline amounted to 3,200, short of the 4,000 valid signatures required.
The Libertarian Party is expected to go to court to force the state to accept the late signatures.
