Socialist Equality Party Takes Steps to Receive Votes for President

Published on October 29, 2008, by in General.

In September, the Socialist Equality Party announced that it is running Jerry White for president, and Bill Van Auken for vice-president. The Socialist Equality Party, and its predecessor organization, the Workers League, placed a presidential candidate on the ballot in some states in 1984, 1988, 1992, 1996, and 2004. However, the party took no steps to get on the ballot in any state in 2008, and it seemed the 2008 campaign was purely symbolic. Now, however, the ticket has filed for write-in status in New York state, so it will get some recorded votes.

    Didn’t New York’s deadline to file for presidential write-in status already pass on October 14th as the third Tuesday prior to the election? (http://www.elections.state.ny.us/RunningOffice.html)
