In New York state, a third party without automatic ballot status is actually an independent political body.

As of Tuesday, August 17th at 6:40pm, the NYS Board of Elections has seven candidates listed as having filed petitions for Governor:

APP Anti-Prohibition Party: Kristin M. Davis

FDM Freedom Party: Charles Barron

GRN Green Party: Howie Hawkins

There will be a period when petitions can be challenged. A decision of the BOE and/or a lawsuit may decide which Libertarian name is on the ballot. Warren Redlich was the candidate chosen formally by the New York State Libertarian convention.
