Lawsuit Filed Against Nebraska 10% Petition for Non-Presidential Independents

Ballot Access News

On February 1, Nebraska State Senator Bob Krist filed a federal lawsuit against the 2016 Nebraska law that raised the number of signatures for a non-presidential independent candidate from 4,000 signatures (for statewide office) to 10% of the number of registered voters. Krist v Gale. Krist is an independent candidate for Governor this year.
The lawsuit also challenges the old law that says independent candidates cannot be called “independent” on the ballot. Instead they have “by petition” printed on the ballot.
