Nebraska Bill Signed that Lets Qualified Parties Dissolve Themselves

On April 9, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman signed LB 1048, which lets a qualified party dissolve itself. This bill came into existence because Americans Elect had qualified in Nebraska, but is no longer functional. Because Nebraska lets parties remain on the ballot for two elections after a successful petition, without this bill, Americans Elect would still be a qualified party in 2014.

  1. Who has the authority to speak for the party and act in its behalf to disqualify itself if there is, for all practical purposes, no party leadership or group extant?

      This is the problem with qualifying political parties by petition – it does not measure ongoing support for continued recognition of the party.
