His party will need more than 51,000 signatures of state residents

The candidate, R.J. Harris of Norman, said during a recent visit to Muskogee that it’s clear that the country is ready to see a third-party candidate in office. But for a Libertarian candidate to appear on the Oklahoma ballot, the Oklahoma Libertarian Party needs to collect more than 51,000 signatures by March 1.
“What we find is that many people’s beliefs align with the Libertarian Party, but they’re so entrenched in the idea that they have to be a Democrat or a Republican that they don’t know it,” he said. “If people in Muskogee feel they may be interested, they can take control, sign the petition and tell others about the party.”
