Wyoming Secretary of State Max Maxfield says the Wyoming Country Party gained ballot access as a provisional party, making it the sixth political party eligible to appear on the general election ballot.

The Country Party reached the required threshold of 3,740 signatures of registered voters on petitions to earn them a place on the ballot as a provisional party. Maxfield says two other provisional parties gained party status earlier this year.

Maxfield says in the 2000 General Election, the state had five parties on the ballot, which was a record, but this year they've surpassed that, with voters potentially seeing candidates from six different parties.
