The ballot access interest ramps up this week because from now through early September there is a petitioning deadline in one or another state every week. The Green Party is already on the ballot in some of the states below, but the Robert Kennedy and Cornel West campaigns are facing the petitioning challenge in almost every one.

RFK has a ton of money and the likelihood is that, in the end, he’ll be on the ballot in at least 48 states, maybe 50. Cornel West lacks money and I’d be surprised to hear as of Sept. 15 that he made the ballot in 30 states; 25 is possible.

The Greens will be upset if we fail to get Jill Stein on 45 ballots.
