Kennedy Submits Triple Number of Signatures Required to Gain Ballot Access in New Mexico

SANTA FE, NM—JULY 1, 2024—The Kennedy campaign today announced it has submitted the required signatures to gain ballot access in New Mexico. The campaign turned in 11,202 signatures on Thursday, more than triple the number required.

“People in the Land of Enchantment support Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for his efforts to revitalize the middle class and empower our youth,” said New Mexico State Director Aaron Diaz. “With an alternative to the two-party system, New Mexicans can now cast their ballots with confidence and hope for a promising new future.” 

The campaign’s aggressive ballot access operation has surpassed all its milestones to ensure the Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is on the ballot in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The ballot access operation is fully funded with more than $15 million raised.

"There are rare moments in life when you’re unequivocally sure of something, and submitting those signatures was one of those moments,” said New Mexico Attorney Blair Dunn. “After watching Kennedy’s performance at The Real Debate, our confidence was cemented — he is the only hope for America.”

The Kennedy-Shanahan ticket is officially on the ballot in eight states — California, Delaware, Hawaii, Michigan, Minnesota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, and Utah

The campaign has submitted its signatures in 12 states — Alaska, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Washington, Illinois, and now New Mexico.

It has collected enough signatures for ballot access in six states — Florida, Idaho, Iowa, Mississippi, New Hampshire, and Nevada. 

The Kennedy-Shanahan campaign has collected the signatures needed for ballot access in 26 states, totaling 353 electoral votes, 66% of the 538 total electoral votes nationwide. 

On May 1, the Kennedy campaign released results from a Zogby poll showing Kennedy beats both Presidents Biden and Trump in head-to-head matchups. Trump defeats Biden handily. Kennedy beats President Trump in a two-way race, by a tight margin. In a two-way race between Kennedy and President Biden, Kennedy wins in a landslide. Kennedy is the first independent ever to defeat both major party candidates in head-to-head matchups.
