Rob Arlett files paperwork for President Trump to appear on Delaware ballot in 2020
DOVER, Del. – Thursday afternoon, Trump State Campaign Chair, Rob Arlett, filed paperwork for President Trump to appear on Delaware’s ballot in 2020. Arlett, along with members of the Delaware Republican Party, presented all the necessary signatures and information to the Delaware State Board of Elections.
In order to get on the ballot, a candidate for president of the United States must meet a variety of complex, state-specific filing requirements and deadlines.
These regulations, known as ballot access laws, determine whether a candidate or party will appear on an election ballot. Arlett tells 47 ABC this action, just a day after Trump was officially impeached, shows that the Republican party is stronger and more united than ever before.
“We collected twice a number of signatures necessary, and way before the deadline months before the deadline,” said Delaware Republican Party Chair, Jane Brady.
“We are here to represent Delawareans the hard-working families that love this president, that love what he stands for and that’s why we stand together in unity,” said,” Arlett.
Now that they’ve received the necessary paperwork, the Delaware Board of Election Officials will vet the signatures and then President Trump will officially be on the ballot.
