Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Myers was on the ballot in Idaho only, and did not participate in the National Convention
  2. ^ Freeman replaced the original vice-presidential nominee, Leonard Peltier, who withdrew for health reasons.[37]
  3. ^ Collins won the party's primary in California on March 3, however the party has not formally nominated him. In 2016, the primary was won by Alan Spears, however the party officially endorsed Donald Trump. There has been no official announcement from the party as of this moment regarding the primary or their nomination. In addition to Collins, De La Fuente, Blankenship, Charles Kraut and J.R. Myers all sought the AIP nomination.
