Voters in Missouri will have a few more choices this fall.
On Tuesday, the Green Party was given approval to appear on the November 8th ballot after turning in more than 23,000 valid petition signatures of registered voters. The secretary of state’s office also certified a dozen independent candidates.
The governor’s race has two new additions – independent candidate Lester Turilli Jr. and Green Party candidate Don Fitz. They join Democrat Chris Koster, Republican Eric Greitens and Libertarian Cisse Spragins.
In the presidential race, Green Party nominee Jill Stein will join Democrat Hillary Clinton, Republican Donald Trump, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle.
