California Independent Presidential Petition in 2020 will be 196,964, Unless Lawsuit Wins

Ballot Access News

The California independent presidential petition in 2020 will be 196,964 valid signatures, to be collected in 105 days, unless the Ninth Circuit strikes down the law in De La Fuente v Padilla, 17-56668. The requirement is 1% of the number of registered voters as of the close of registration for the November 2018 election.
No other state has ever required so many signatures for an independent presidential candidate in U.S. history. However, before 1969, Ohio had no procedures for an independent presidential candidate to get on the ballot.
