Yep you missed the deadline.  The difference between Mr. Rocky Raccoon of
the Very Silly Party declaring his candidacy and the Green, Independent
and Libertarian candidates are they are legit, and all three followed the
rules in place to get their names on the ballot in Massachusetts.
(something that is not easy to do as a third party candidate)  You are
legit enough to force the Secretary of State to put you on the ballot
then it is my opinon that you are legit enough to take part in these
debates etc.
