New Hampshire Law Commission Keeps Tom Alciere on Libertarian Primary Ballot, Despite Objections from Party Leaders

Ballot Access News

On June 25, the New Hampshire Ballot Law Commission voted to keep Tom Alciere on the Libertarian primary ballot for U.S. House, 2nd district. He is a registered Libertarian and he paid the filing fee. However, some party officers filed a challenge to his ballot placement on the grounds that he is not a bona fide member of the party. In some states, such as Alabama, Tennessee, and Missouri, candidates may be kept off primary ballots if the party determines that the candidate is not a bona fide member. New Hampshire election law does not recognize the ability of party leaders to exert veto power over candidates.
