Tennessee Ballot Access Bill Introduced

Published on February 2, 2013, by in General.

On January 31, Tennessee State Senator Jim Kyle (D-Memphis), the leader of the Democrats in the State Senate, introduced SB 1091. It lowers the number of signatures for a newly-qualifying party from 2.5% of the last gubernatorial vote to exactly 1,000 signatures. Thanks to Daniel Lewis for this news.

  1. Thank you Richard. The link to the bill is http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/108/Bill/SB1091.pdf

    We need a member of the Tennessee house to sponsor the bill as well, or else it will go nowhere. This is the list of all Tennessee House members

    The bill is a bit confusing, but I think Senator Kyle is headed in the right direction. Send him an email thanking him for introducing the bill sen.jim.kyle@capitol.tn.gov
