Secretary of State Mark Martin today received petitions submitted on behalf of the party.
State law allows any group wishing to form a new political party to do so by submitting a petition to the Secretary of State. The petition must contain the signatures of at least 10,000 registered voters.
The Libertarians said today their petition held a total of 16,144 signatures.
The Secretary of State's office has 30 days to verify that the signatures are from registered Arkansas voters.
