Ballot Access News

State ex rel Blankenship v Warner, 18-0712The opinion is at its weakest near the end, when it tries to explain why keeping “sore losers” off the ballot for unqualified parties doesn’t violate equal protection, because qualified minor parties are free to nominate “sore losers” if they nominate by convention.
