Oklahoma House of Representatives Invites Public Commentary on How to Improve Oklahoma Laws

The Oklahoma House of Representatives has established a web page, SpeakUp Oklahoma, which invites readers to suggest improvements for Oklahoma laws. Oklahomans for Ballot Access Reform is publicizing this, and is asking Oklahomans to use the site, to suggest ballot access reform.

Oklahoma voters have not been permitted to vote for anyone for President, other than the two major party nominees, in each of the last three presidential elections. There are only two other instances of any other state that ever gave voters such restricted choice for President, for three or more elections in a row. One was Ohio in the years 1952 through 1964. The other was Nebraska, 1940 through 1964.

Although certain other states also had several years in a row in which only the two major party presidential nominees were on the ballot, those other states always permitted and counted write-in votes. Thanks to E. Zachary Knight for the link.

    Major party legislators have frequently eased the ballot access laws, even when no court had struck down such laws. Since 1985, legislatures in a majority of states have improved ballot access laws: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida (although that was forced by a vote of the people), Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts (though that was forced by a vote of the people), Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

    We have made more progress by lobbying legislatures than by lawsuits.
