AS 15.30.025. Qualifications For Limited Political Parties.
- (a) A limited political party may be organized for the purpose of selecting candidates for electors of President and
Vice-President of the United States by filing with the director at least 90 days before a presidential general election
a petition signed by qualified voters of the state equaling in number at least one percent of the number of voters who
cast ballots for President at the last presidential election. The petition shall state that the signers intend to
organize a limited political party, that they intend to select candidates for electors of President and Vice-President
of the United States at the next succeeding presidential election, and the name of the limited political party.
- (b) A limited political party organized under this section may not assume a name which is so similar to an existing
political party as to confuse or mislead the voters at an election. If the director determines that the name of the
limited political party set out in a petition is confusing or misleading, the director may refuse to accept the
petition for filing.
- (c) A limited political party organized under this section ceases to be a limited political party if its presidential
candidate fails to receive at least three percent of the number of voters who cast ballots for the office of President
at a presidential election.
