Dennis Spisak of Struthers, Ohio, originally to be a write-in candidate, provided proof of his selection by the Green Party and will appear on the Nov. 4 general election ballot.
According to a press release issued by Spisak, Columbiana County Board of Elections Director Kim Meek said she was contacted last week about the Secretary of State’s decision to let Spisak on the ballot, if he provided proof of his nomination.
Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner ordered the placement of the Green Party presidential ticket on the ballot in light of recent court decisions which allowed Libertarian candidates to be put on the ballots. This decision came the first week of September.
Spisak claimed his name should go on the ballot, since he’s a Green Party candidate who has served the party since late 2003 and was chosen by the Ohio Green Party’s State Coordinating Committee to run for the Sixth District congressional seat.
