For the politically curious in NY: Tues. Aug. 18th is a big day!

KW:

For potential candidates in New York State, tomorrow, Tuesday, August 18, 2009, is the last day to file in person (or mail) an “independent nominating petition” to run for office in November. That would mean anyone who was running on an alternative, “made-up”, or third party (without automatic ballot status) line has that due date. Examples of such ballot lines would include: the Green Party; the Libertarian Party; the Education Party; the We Love XXX Town Party; etc. Major parties and automatic ballot-status parties (such as the Conservative Party in NY) have an earlier deadline which is passed.

Stay tuned here for updates. Or, wait a couple of days for filings by mail, etc., and ask your local Board of Elections for a candidate list. Another place to check would be political blogs such as Elizabeth Benjamin’s Daily Politics site or the Capitol Confidential at the Albany Times Union.

I know of two sets of petitions expected: The Green Party NYC Mayor candidate and the Libertarian Party Mayor candidate.
