Cuomo Could Still Be Running For Governor Despite Deadline Passing

Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo appears to have opted against mounting an independent run for his old job — at least for now 5 p.m. Tuesday was the deadline for candidates to collect 45,000 voter signatures if they wanted to appear as an independent candidate for governor on the November general election ballot, and that deadline passed without Cuomo’s campaign turning in the required nominating petitions, according to the state Board of Elections.

However, the AP reports that Cuomo could still get on the ballot if his campaign had collected those signatures and put his petitions in the mail. If that paperwork was to arrive by today , bearing a postmark dated Tuesday or earlier, it would still count, Board of Elections spokesperson Jennifer Wilson said.
