Best Answer

Yes, if you want to win. In order to appear on the ballot a petition must be filed with state election officials and there is a deadline for this filing. There are similar deadlines for primary elections. If the primaries do not wrap up the nomination then the deadline would be the national conventions .

If you are running as a write-in candidate with no hope of winning, there is no deadline.
