Ohio LP asks Ohio legislators to support ballot access reform

Ballot Access News

The Ohio Libertarian Party media director is about to mail a letter to all 132 state legislators, asking each one to help reform Ohio’s ballot access laws. The letter points out that the Ohio procedure to get a new party on the ballot was declared unconstitutional in September 2006, and that no one has even introduced a bill to replace the old law. The letter notes that Illinois and Arkansas also had their ballot access laws declared unconstitutional in 2006, but both of those states passed better laws in 2007.

Similar activism ought to be taking place in many states besides Ohio. Especially in need of better laws for new and minor parties are- Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia.

    Hooray! I am very happy for the Ohio LP—I just moved to Ohio from Iowa, where ballot access is much more reasonable. Ohio is one of the worst, if I am not mistaken.
