FOR RHODE ISLAND BALLOT
Rhode Island Secretary of State certifies the Greens' ballot placement; Voters in every county will see presidential candidate Jill Stein and running mate Cheri Honkala on the November ballot.
PROVIDENCE, RI (September 13, 2012) — The Green Party of Rhode Island has learned that its nearly 2,000 petition signatures have been validated by Secretary of State A. Ralph Mollis. The secretary of state's certification means Green presidential candidate Jill Stein, and running mate Cheri Honkala, will appear on Rhode Island's ballot this November. Nick Schmader, the Greens' vice chair for peace and diplomacy, said having a Green presidential slate on the Rhode Island ballot will once again "give voters an alternative to the dysfunctional, two-party duopoly." As of September 13, the Stein/Honkala ticket had qualified for the ballot in 35 states and the District of Columbia—far surpassing the minimum number of states for an Electoral College majority.
