A moderate third party called No Labels is attempting to get its presidential ticket on the 2024 general election ballot in Alabama.
According to the Alabama Secretary of State's Office, the group has already submitted signatures in an effort to appear on the ballots of Alabama voters in November 2024.
"We are in receipt of signatures from No Labels to obtain ballot access for the 2024 General Election," Clay Helms, chief of staff for Alabama Secretary of State Wes Allen, told 1819 News on Monday. "Those signatures have not been verified to determine ballot access status yet, though."
Helms said the Secretary of State's deadline to verify and certify the names of candidates for the 2024 general election is Aug. 23, 2024.
A spokesperson for No Labels didn't return a request for comment on Monday.
According to its website, No Labels is preparing for the possibility of nominating a candidate but hasn't committed to do so yet. The group also says they'll only run a presidential ticket under the "proper environmental conditions, which must be met for us to proceed."
The group recently welcomed aboard former Missouri Democrat Governor and Attorney General Jay Nixon and plans to be on the ballot in all 50 states.
ALGOP chairman John Wahl told 1819 News on Monday, "The Alabama Republican Party is not concerned about No Labels potentially gaining ballot access for the 2024 election."
"In 2022, the Libertarian Party made a push throughout Alabama, and none of their candidates crossed the finish line. Alabama voters know the Republican Party shares their fundamental Conservative values and will always defend their rights and freedoms. We are the Party of lower taxes, defending the unborn, protecting the Second Amendment, and stopping leftist woke policies aimed at indoctrinating our children," Wahl said. "The bottom line is that the principles in the Republican Party platform are what make the GOP so successful in our state. As long as we hold to them, we have nothing to fear."
