Oklahoma Libertarians Denied Injunction

The Libertarian Party won’t have their presidential candidate on the ballot in Oklahoma.  Yesterday, a federal judge denied their request for an injunction that would have prevented a new state election law from taking effect.  The Libertarians wanted either more time to gather signatures or a reduction of the number of signatures needed.  They claim the law is unconstitutional.

In 2008, Libertarian candidate Bob Barr lost a lawsuit against Oklahoma and was not placed on the ballot.  According to Independent Political Report, Oklahoma was the only state not to have independent or small party candidates on the presidential ballot in both 2008 and 2004.

No word yet on who the fifty people will now vote for who would have voted Libertarian. (Apologies to my Libertarian readers.)
