Americans Elect to seek ballot access in Tennessee

The group that is seeking to offer a third, nonpartisan/bipartisan choice in all 50 states for the 2012 presidential election will file its petition tomorrow to be listed on Tennessee ballots. A partial press release follows:

On Thursday morning, Americans Elect Tennessee delegate volunteers Ronn Huff and Chris Farrar will file the Americans Elect petition with the Tennessee Elections Division for a line on the ballot for the 2012 presidential election. Americans Elect collected the signatures of 72,662 voters in Tennessee – far surpassing the state requirement of 40,039 – in support of more choice on the ballot this November.

Volunteers Huff and Farrar, a Democrat and Republican, respectively, are enthusiastic that a fundamental change to the nominating system will open up the political process in Tennessee and across the country, giving voters the chance to elect leaders who represent people, not parties.
