Libertarians cleared to appear on Arkansas ballot

Posted: Updated:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Libertarian Party of Arkansas has been cleared to appear on the ballot next year after election officials say they turned in enough signatures to qualify.

 Secretary of State Mark Martin's office told the party Friday that it had verified that 12,487 signatures submitted were from registered voters in the state. The party needed to submit at least 10,000 valid signatures to receive ballot access.

 The party said in a statement that it was recruiting candidates for next year. Three people have already said they want to seek the party's nomination for governor.

 The party will choose its nominees at a convention in February.
