Subchapter III
Independent Candidates

IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND:
IN THE STATE OF VERMONT,
AN
UN-ORGANIZED
POLITICAL PARTY MAY APPEAR ON
THE OFFICIAL ELECTION BALLOT
UNDER THE RULES
FOR INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES!

"UNITED STATES MARIJUANA PARTY" IS AN
UN-ORGANIZED
POLITICAL PARTY
AND THEREFORE MAY APPEAR ON THE OFFICIAL
ELECTION BALLOT IN VERMONT UNDER THE
RULES BELOW:

NOTE: INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES MAY USE UP TO 3
DESCRIPTIVE WORDS,
APPEARING ON THE BALLOT AS
"UNITED STATES MARIJUANA" PARTY !!!

Section 2401. Applicability of subchapter
A person may be nominated and have his or her name
printed on the general election ballot for any office by
filing a consent similar in form to the consent prescribed by
section 2361 of this title and a statement of nomination with
the secretary of state.

Section 2402. Requisites of statement
(a) A statement of nomination shall contain:
(1) The name of the office for which the nomination is made;
(2) The candidate's name and residence;
(3) If desired, a name, or other identification
(in not more than three words)
"UNITED STATES MARIJUANA" --- the word "Party" is
already on the form ---
to be printed on the ballot following the candidate's name;
(4) in the case of a nomination for president or vice-president of the
United States, the name and state of residence of each candidate
for such office, together with the name, town of residence, and
correct mailing address of each nominee for the office of elector.
The statement shall also be accompanied by a consent form from each
nominee for elector. The consent form shall be similar to the
consent form prescribed in section 2361 of this title.
(b) To constitute a valid nomination, a statement shall contain signatures
of voters qualified to vote in an election for the office in question, equal
in number to at least:
(1) For president and vice-presidential offices, 1,000.
Signatures need not all be contained on one paper.
(c) A statement shall state that each signer is qualified to vote in an
election for the office in question and that the voter's residence is as set
forth next to his name. Every statement of nomination shall include
the certificate of the town clerk where the signers appear to be voters,
certifying whether the persons whose names appear as signers of the
statement are registered voters in the town. Only those names certified
by the town clerk to be those of registered voters of the town shall count
toward required number of signatures. (This requirement for the town
clerk to check off the names was changed for statewide elections in 2010
so that the Secretary of State, Elections Division had to check off the names
to be certain they were all registered voters of Vermont in 2010.)
(e) The secretary of state shall prescribe and furnish forms for a statement
of nomination. Vermont Secretary of State - Jim Condos

Section 2403. Number of candidates; party names
A statement of nomination shall contain the name of only one candidate,
except in the case of presidential and vice-presidential candidates, who
may be nominated by means of the same statement of nomination.
A person shall not sign more than one statement of nomination for the same
office. The political or other name on a statement of nomination shall be substantially
different from the name of any organized political party. It shall also be
substantially different from the political or other name already appearing on any
other statement of nomination for the same office then on file with the
same officer for the same election; if the secretary of state determines that it is not
substantially different, the candidate named on the statement shall select a
different political or other name, otherwise the secretary may reject the statement
of nomination. Except in the case of presidential and vice-presidential candidates,
the word "independent" may not be used as part of a party name; if no party is
indicated, the word "Independent" shall be printed on the ballot, and no candidate
appearing on the ballot as a candidate of a political party shall also appear on the
ballot as an "Independent".

So, do you understand? In the State of Vermont, an 'independent' candidate
may chose up to three descriptive words and appear on the ballot as a party
so long as it is not the name of an "organized" party.

The "United States Marijuana" party (the word party is already on the form)
is NOT an organized party.

Therefore, any U.S. Citizen of age 35 or older may
appear on the 2012 official election ballot in Vermont, after collecting the
required number of petition signatures, as the "United States Marijuana" party,
as a candiate for President and for Vice-President of the United States.
