SOS Confirmed He Turned in 4000 valid signatures
Eliot Cutler, an independent candidate for governor, turned in more than 4,000 signatures to the state Friday to become the first unenrolled candidate to qualify for the November ballot.
Cutler, an attorney who worked for U.S. Sen. Ed Muskie and President Jimmy Carter, beat the June 1 deadline to turn in his signatures. He'll face the Democratic and Republican nominees in November.
