CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Members of the Wyoming Green Party plan to petition to get Jill Stein, their presumptive presidential nominee, on the November ballot as an independent candidate.

The Star-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1TC6Kja ) that the Green Party isn’t currently recognized by the Wyoming Secretary of State’s office, so party members must petition for their candidates to be listed on the ballot.

Green member Bern Haggerty of Laramie says it was difficult to get Stein on the primary ballot, so Greens are instead targeting the general election. They will need to collect 3,302 signatures by August 29.

Haggerty believes that Stein will appeal to Greens as well as many supporters of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, should he lose the Democratic presidential nomination to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
