Connecticut Ballot Access Bill

Source: Ballot Access News

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.
