Earlier today, the Constitution Party released a new, updated ballot access map for its presidential candidate, Darrell Castle. According to the nation’s foremost ballot access expert, Richard Winger of Ballot Access News, Castle will likely be on the ballot in 25 or 26 states, for a total access to 211 or 222 Electoral College Votes, respectively. In 2012, Constitution Party nominee Virgil Goode was on the ballot in 26 states.
The Constitution Party’s latest ballot access achievement was in Arkansas, which marks a special victory for the Constitution Party of Arkansas as Goode was not on the ballot in the Natural State four years ago.
The Constitution Party has not yet polled over 200,000 votes for president. The party’s best showing was when Chuck Baldwin, whose running mate was none other than Castle, received 199,880 votes (0.15%) in the 2008 presidential election.
