Court Ruling reinstates Libertarian Party voter registrations, enabling Libertarian Presidential ballot access.
Today (Friday, May 27th), Judge John Woodcock of the US District Court ruled for injunctive relief in the Libertarian Party of Maine's lawsuit against the Maine Secretary of State, reinstating 4513 enrollments of registered voters in the Libertarian Party, and extending the period of time required to achieve 5000 enrolled members to July 12, 2016.
This means that if 487 more people register to vote as Libertarians, the Libertarian Party will have their Presidential nominee on the November ballot in Maine.
