ALL Americans Have a Third Option on the Ballot | Jo Jorgensen Secures 50 States + DC Ballot Access

ALL Americans Have a Third Option on the Ballot | Jo Jorgensen Secures 50 States + DC Ballot Access

UPDATE: 09-11-20 The state of Rhode Island finished certifying the validated signatures. The article previously had been based upon validated totals rather than certified.

On Friday, September 11th, the State of Rhode Island certified that Jo Jorgensen would appear on the Rhode Island ballot by certifying the Libertarian Party elector slate.

Rhode Island marks the 50th state + Washington DC to certify Jo Jorgensens 2020 Presidential Ballot access. The Libertarian Party secured all 50 states' access in 1992, 1996, and 2000.  The Libertarian Party did not ensure 50 states access again until 2016 when former New Mexico Gary Johnson ran for the nomination with VP candidate Bill Weld former governor of Massachusets. 

Even with the 50 states certifying ballot access Jo Jorgensen is unlikely to be invited into the presidential debates. This disenfranchisement stems from extreme levels of collaboration to exclude third parties from the debates committed by the commission on presidential debates. 

Even so, Jo Jorgensen has enough ballot access to win 270 electoral votes. Before the readers jump to the conclusion that the electoral college wouldn't vote as determined by the state, I suggest you read our article discussing this election myth as we look into how we choose electors
