NV-SOS Denies Ballot Access to the Green Party Candidate


After review of the signatures on applications presented to the Clark County Registrar, it was determined that insufficient “valid” signatures were obtained in order to qualify Green Party candidate Jill Stein a spot on Nevada’s 2016 General Election Ballot.

That Clark County decision was appealed to the NV Secretary of State, Barbara Cegavske. After a review of the procedures used by Clark County, she affirmed Clark County’s results and denied the Green Party’s appeal pursuant to Nevada statute NRS 293.12795(3).

Conclusion:
The Secretary of State hereby affirms the Certificate of Results of Signature Examination for the Nevada Green Party ballot access petition submitted by the Clark County Registrar of Voters on June 21, 2016. It is the finding of this office that the Nevada Green Party ballot access petition was properly verified by the Clark County Registrar of Voters in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations, and procedures.  Accordingly, the Appeal by the Nevada Green Party Contesting Clark County’s Verification of Signatures in Support of the Green Party’s Ballot Access Petition is denied. Pursuant to NRS 293.12795(1)(b), the Clark County Registrar of Voters will be notified that the petition at issue remains insufficient. This decision is final for purposes of judicial review, pursuant to NRS 293.12795(3).
