The signatures needed in each state are based on a combination of specific number requirements and percentages of the votes cast in the most recent relevant election or the total number of registered voters.

These signature filing deadlines are approximate and can be subject to change.

These deadlines to file signatures typically range from early May to early September of the election year, and missing these deadlines can preclude a candidate from appearing on the ballot in that state.
