Weld due in Boston to turn in ballot access petitions

Former Massachusetts Gov. William Weld will be in Boston Monday to turn in signatures needed to ensure ballot access for the Johnson-Weld Libertarian Party presidential ticket.
According to the Weld campaign, the former governor will address those who believe supporting his ticket with former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson will be a wasted vote, since Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump are leading in public opinion polls.
Weld plans to deliver petitions to Secretary of State William Galvin’s elections division at 2:30 p.m. and organizers have invited media to gather in the lobby of One Ashburton Place, across the street from the State House, where Weld is expected to talk to the media.
