Based on current figures, the Green Party could move up on the ballot to be at the number 4 spot. It looks like the new ballot arrangement might be: Democrat; Republican; Conservative; Green Party; Working Families Party; Independence Party; Stop Common Core Party (may or may not get the 50,000 for automatic ballot status); Women’s Equality Party (may or may not get the 50,000); SAP Party (may or may not get the 50,000); Women’s Equality Party (may or may not get the 50,000). And, the SAP Party will probably not get the 50,000.
Notes: With 6,538 of 15,178 reporting…
Working Families has surpassed the 50,000 automatic ballot status number
Independence Party has 30,370 votes, so there is a small chance they will not reach 50,000 ballot status
Stop Common Core (created by Astorino supporters) has 23,884, so there is a chance it could reach 50,000 ballot status
