-James Camp20% is the number Johnson needs to hit nationally on election day. At 20% of the vote, Georgia, and many other states, election laws will then consider the Libertarian Party as a "Political Party" instead of a "Political Body" and they will get ballot access to all the statewide and local races as well as ballot access in the primaries. Let Georgia get a 3rd party on all the down ballots races and primaries and watch the other 2 parties start to **** all over themselves.
You ONLY have TWO Parties when there is Repression. Two-Parties are NOT Natural.
"A multi-party system is normal," says Richard Winger, publisher and editor of Ballot Access News. "You only have a two party system if there's repression. It's not natural."
With both major parties offering up two of the most unpopular presidential candidates in modern history, many voters (and the media) are paying more attention to third party options such as Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
But while independent candidates are gaining in popularity, getting them on the ballot to vote for them can be a long and costly process.
"There's so many ways in which the United States is near the bottom of democracy," says Winger, an expert in election law and ballot access. "There's been unbelievable hostility in the last few months to minor parties."
