The deadline has arrived for Senator Harri Anne Smith.
In order to appear on the November ballot as an Independent, Senator Smith had to get more than 1,300 registered voters to sign a petition.
Her petition campaign crew has worked for weeks to get the needed signatures.
Although time is up, workers still don't know if their had work has paid off.
"We feel confident that we have sent enough up there but obviously until their validated by the sec of state its not official and they did tell us today that it will be 7 to 10 days. But the response from the community has been overwhelming so we feel confident that the community has spoken again like they did four years ago," explained Gayla White, Petition Campaign Manager.
If Senator Smith does receive the necessary signatures she will be on the November ballot against Melinda McClendon.
