(Oklahoma City-AP) -- The Libertarian and Reform parties will be recognized parties in November's election, after each party collected the needed signatures.

The parties needed at least 43,680 valid signatures of registered voters to be certified. The Natural Law Party did NOT get the signatures it needed and won't be on the ballot.

Another group is circulating a petition to get the name of Ralph Nader on the state election ballot as an independent presidential candidate. Nader is the Green Party's presidential nominee.

The group has until July 15th to collect at least 36,202 valid signatures of registered voters.
