(AP) — The Libertarian Party's candidate for North Dakota governor won't be on the November general election ballot.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Roland Riemers will not be on the ballot in November because his lieutenant governor running mate missed the deadline to appear on the primary ballot.

The state's constitution requires the governor and lieutenant governor to be elected jointly on the ballot.

Riemers' running mate, Richard Ames, did not completely fill out the paperwork to appear on the primary ballot. Riemers appeared on the primary ballot by himself and earned enough votes to qualify for the November election, but the attorney general ruled that Riemers could not appear on the November ballot.

That means only the Republican and Democratic-NPL Party tickets for governor will be on the November ballot.
