According to this story, Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill has said she approves of two recent state court opinions, but the two opinions do not agree with each other. A new law requires candidates nominated in convention to sign a statement that they accept the nomination. But the law was not publicized, and it has been responsible for eliminating local minor parties from the ballot in several towns this year. Connecticut holds local partisan elections on November 5, 2013.
One state court ruled that due process was violated when the convention nominees were not informed of their need to sign the new form, and put the candidates on the ballot anyway. Another state court, in a lawsuit involving a different town, came to the opposite conclusion.
