Libertarian Jeff Amason will be in Fulton County Superior Court on Monday, as the court hears his case for ballot access to run for the state House District 21 seat.

Amason and his campaign group, Amason for Liberty, will be in court at 10 a.m., requesting his name be placed on the Nov. 4 ballot as a Libertarian candidate to run against Rep. Scot Turner (R- Holly Springs).

“We are very optimistic that the court will find in our favor. The court has a great opportunity to clarify its position and uphold the legislative intent for corporate notaries in Georgia,” Amason said.

Amason said he collected the required number of signatures in order to get his name on the ballot in November, but Secretary of State’s office spokesman Jared Thomas said Amason’s nomination petition failed, after 225 of 228 pages of the petition were disqualified due to a notary issue.

But Amason said he is confident he has a chance to get on the ballot, and wants to give voters a choice.

“The voters in District 21 have asked for choice in November, and I am happy to fight for their right. Once this case is behind us, I am looking forward to returning to the campaign trail and carrying the fight for freedom to the Georgia Legislature,” he said.
