Connecticut Ballot Access Bill

Published on January 30, 2013, by in General.

Connecticut Representative Tim Bowles (D-Preston) has introduced a bill to lower the statewide independent candidate petition, and the statewide petition for newly-qualifying parties, from 7,500 signatures, to 5,000 signatures. The bill doesn’t have a bill number yet.

In 2012, the only statewide minor party or independent petitions that succeeded were the Libertarian Party’s petition for President and U.S. Senate, and the Independent Party’s U.S. Senate petition. Thanks to Mike DeRosa for this news.

    The Independent Party nominated Linda McMahon as a fusion ticket with the Republicans, though.

    Independent Party didn’t need petitions for President, correct, because of Nader?
