AGLO 1974 NO. 103 >

A political party does not become a "major" political party on a state‑wide [[statewide]]basis solely as a result of one of its candidates having received at least ten percent of the votes cast for the office of state representative within a single legislative district; however, the party does become a major political party under those circumstances insofar as the legislative district itself is concerned.
