Warner Submits Signatures for Ballot

Anita Kumar

Former governor Mark R. Warner submitted the signatures of 29,146 Virginia voters to the State Board of Elections in Richmond Friday to get his name on the November ballot.

Friday was the deadline for all candidates to submit signatures to get on the ballot.

Republican candidates James S. Gilmore III and Del. Robert G. Marshall (R-Prince William) did not have to submit signatures. Instead, they will compete for their party's nomination at the state convention in June.

"Hundreds of people from every corner of the Commonwealth volunteered their time to gather these signatures, and their tremendous effort allowed us to dramatically exceed all of our expectations," Warner said. "I really appreciate this tangible sign of enthusiasm and broad-based support for our campaign to insist on common-sense results, and not partisanship, from Washington."

State law requires candidates to submit the signatures of at least 10,000 Virginia voters, including the signatures of at least 400 registered voters in each of Virginia's eleven congressional districts. The Democratic party has until Wednesday to verify the signatures.

Warner's signatures were collected across the state by 602 volunteers.
