Third Party and Independent Candidates for Office, 2010

Frustrated by recent attempts to locate a single source listing declared or potential third party and independent candidates for office in 2010, I decided to compile one myself, focusing on candidates with active websites in races for governor, the US Senate and House. As with the Poli-Tea Guide to the Third Party and Independent Blogosphere, I will attempt to keep the list current, updating it as the opportunity arises. If there are any candidates I've missed, or just plain old mistakes, or you know some good sources compiling such information, please supply the info or correction in the comments, or send me an email. This list is not complete, but it is fairly comprehensive. To find out about all candidates for office in your state or district, consult your state's Board of Elections. In compiling this list, I have relied upon the Green Papers and Politics 1, which were indispensable resources. Updated: November 8, '09. Updated: January 10, '10. Updated: September 19, '10.

The Green Papers, I believe, has this covered:

They also have an RSS feed for changes to the list.

Great resource. I was not familiar with it. Thanks Dale!

derek said...

Keep an eye on the Maine Ethics Commission website. Augusta Edgerton and John Whitcomb are running Independent. Haven't found any websites, facebook, or tweets yet. There are a lot of rumors about people joining in later. If I hear any more people I'll let you know.

derek said...

Oh an Quinlan has made no mention anywhere of his run. Lynne Williams has been out stumping and supporting a lot of things. If Quinlan makes it to the primary, I don't see him beating Williams.

thanks, Derek.

Greetings-

Samantha Carter is a member of the Official Candidate of the Independent American Party not the AIP.

Thank you

Samantha Carter is the Official Candidate of the Independent American Party not the AIP. Also Jeff Durbin is running for senate in Naveda under the Independent American Party Ticket.

Roger said...

I would like to thank all who have stepped up to serve America and the people of America. There are so many in America that feel we are not being served by the 2 Party System. We feel our elected officials are too committed to Party Bosses and not "We the People" We need people in elected office to support those who elected them and not Party Bosses or Lobbyist. May God Bless each of you and May God Bless America....AGAIN.

Hi d.eris,

A couple things/corrections to add to your list. Marc Luzietti is running as a Socialist Party candidate for congress in Florida's 20th district, and Carlos Alvarez is also a member of the Party for Socialism and Liberation, though he's seeking the PFP nomination for governor.

I also read on the PFP blog that PSL member Gloria La Riva is planning on running against Nancy Pelosi. However, that was a post from October, and I haven't heard anything about it elsewhere.

d.eris said...

Thanks Peter. I'm gonna update the list in the next few days (hopefully). Will add them in.

d.eris,

thanks for centralizing all the third party candidates as well as updating for accuracy.

Nice job!

The Kentucky Governor's Race is actually in 2011, not 2010.

Chad said...

Hello all,
I thought I would offer a correction of sorts. My name is Chad Kreemer. I am running in Ohio's 7th congressional district for the U.S. House. I love what you are doing here. I couldn't agree more that both parties have, and are continuing to, let us down.

You need to change my name above to a link to my new website. It was just launched so it is under construction but will improve daily.

It is kreemerforcongress.com

You may also email me at kreemerforcongress@gmail.com

Let's take our country back, limit government, curtail spending, secure our borders etc etc etc. You know...things we should always be doing but aren't getting done.

Keep up the good work!!!

Chad

Michele said...

Thanks for this site. I will refer back often. Can you correct something for us. I put up a nice website for G Scott Deshefy, CT candiate for congress, 2nd district. Can you link to that, instead of his green party one. We will be removing that and/or liking to his personal site.
www.deshefyforcongress.org

We'd appreciate it.
Michele L.

Alessandro Machi said...

I don't know what it is about your site but when I click on the links, I can't see the web address. So I have no way to add the sites on My Third Party

We have 3 third party candidates running for the 3rd district Congressional seat in Kentucky:

PARTY TOTALS FOR 9 RACES:

Green: 2/9
Independent Reform: 1/9

ALSO:
There is no mention of a 'Unity' ticket anywhere on the Colorado Elections division website.

Unofficial Candidate List:

Erik G. said...

Actually, I should probably clarify my last comment.

There is no mention of 'Unity' ticket *candidates* on the Colorado Elections division website. It's listed as having 'Qualified Political Organization Status,' but it doesn't have any candidates listed on the website's candidate lists.

Thus, it's possible the Unity Party hasn't submitted it's list of candidates yet, so it's not incorrect to say they're official or unofficial at this point.

Dear Anonymous,
Explicitly race-based, racist and racialist parties and candidates will find no support from Poli-Tea. Thanks.

d.eris said...

Dear everyone,
Thanks for all of your helpful and substantive comments. Working on this list by myself, given the hundreds of third party and independent candidates for governor, House and Senate nationwide, I have found it somewhat difficult to keep the list comprehensive and current, as noted at the top of the post.

Though I have put in my best effort here, I am certain that there are no doubt a fair, if not large, number of candidates whom I have overlooked. Apologies.

Though/because I may not have the time to get around to updating the list again before the election is over, please do not hesitate to continue providing names and links here in the comments.

Thanks again.
best,
-d.

Thus, it's possible the Unity Party hasn't submitted it's list of candidates yet, so it's not incorrect to say they're official or unofficial at this point.
