CHEYENNE – Dr. Jill Stein and Rocky De La Fuente will appear as presidential candidates on Wyoming’s general election ballot, the Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office said Thursday.
Both candidates were able to achieve the required number of signatures needed for ballot access.
A petition attempt by the campaign of Evan McMullin was unsuccessful.
Stein is the Green Party presidential candidate, but will appear as an independent because the Green Party does not have ballot access in Wyoming.
De La Fuente, a perennial presidential candidate, ran for the Democratic nomination earlier this year.
McMullin is a conservative who is running as an alternative to Donald Trump and is appealing to Republican voters who do not support Trump.
Stein and De La Fuente will join Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle on the ballot as presidential candidates.
