OK Supreme Court Rejects Addition to Ballot
The Oklahoma Supreme Court denies a motion to add Libertarian
presidential candidate and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson to
the presidential ballot.
The Oklahoma Americans Elect Party
petitioned to get Johnson on the ballot, but the court ruled only a
national party can launch a presidential candidate.
Johnson is the Libertarian candidate and is being backed by several other independent parties.
Oklahomans have not had a third party presidential choice since 2000.
Independent voters make up roughly 11 percent of registered voters according to the State Election Board.

MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- The residents of Moore, Okla., affected by a deadly tornado are coming back to find their belongings scattered and their homes left in pieces.
Monday's tornado killed at least 24 people, countless homes and reduced one elementary school almost entirely to rubble. While officials still grapple with how to rebuild and how to pay for it, people in this Oklahoma City suburb are anxious to start the process of rebuilding.
Colleen Arvin, an 83-year-old grandmother, walked with her son and grandsons through what was left of her home. Part of her roof was sitting in the front yard, and the siding from the front of the house was gone.
She laughed when a grandson found her keys. She said: "Oh thank God. We can get in the house."
