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.
