Plan B For Candidates

Candidates who get rejected at their party conventions have not a moment to lose in planning their petition drives. In New York, statewide candidates who do not gain their party's endorsement at its state convention or at least 25 percent of the party's delegate votes (which may be weighted differently according to each party's formula) HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE but to get petition signatures to get on the primary ballot.  (For major party candidates, that's 15,000 signatures; for minor parties, it's five percent of that party's enrollment -- a number which is lower than the 15,000 but still a high threshold, because the signatures must also be witnessed by a party member or a notary public.   Therefore, it's tough -- but not impossible.)

Without a petition, it's GAME OVER.

Once you read about a convention's outcome, you should also know that the planning for "Plan B" should already be underway.

Even during a holiday weekend.
