PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Secretary of State Michele Reagan and the Arizona Green Party have struck a deal allowing the party’s presidential candidate on the November ballot despite the party’s failure to file its nomination papers for Electoral College delegates on time.

The party and Reagan asked a federal judge earlier this week to enter an injunction requiring Reagan to accept the electors’ nomination papers.

Voters technically choose presidential electors in the general election and they choose the next president. The Green Party’s candidate is Jill Stein.

Reagan said last month that the party missed the June 1 deadline and she saw no legal way around the deadline requirement. The Green Party then sued.

The Green Party is the smallest of Arizona’s four recognized political parties with about 4,500 members.
