RFK Jr. submits signatures in Georgia

An attendee waits for the start of a rally for Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. on May 13 in Austin, Texas.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s campaign submitted signatures to qualify for ballot access in Georgia, a key battleground state, the campaign announced on Wednesday. 

The campaign said in a news release they submitted more than 21,000 signature to the Georgia Secretary of State’s office on Tuesday. Independent presidential candidates must submit 7,500 valid signatures to qualify for the state’s ballot. 

The Georgia’s Secretary of State’s office will review Kennedy’s petition before making a final determination. 

Kennedy’s petition comes less than a week after fellow independent candidate Cornel West submitted signatures in Georgia, potentially expanding the ballot and complicating the electoral dynamic in a state that President Joe Biden flipped in 2020 to help him defeat former President Donald Trump. 

Kennedy is currently on the ballot in eight states: Minnesota, Michigan, Tennessee, California, Utah, Hawaii, Oklahoma and Delaware.
