A political party has missed the deadline to appear on the presidential ballot.

The Arizona Secretary of State announced on Tuesday that the Green Party failed to submit its presidential electors’ by the June 1 deadline.

According to the Secretary of State, their nominee will not appear on the general election ballot.

"In consultation with the Attorney General's office we could not identify any statutory authority to waive that deadline or accept late nomination papers," said Secretary Reagan.  "The only remedy seems to be through the courts where a judge could direct our office to print the name of the Green Party nominee on the ballot."
