Texas Ballot Access Bill Isn’t Dead After All

Published on March 30, 2007, by in General.

An earlier posting said that the chair of the Texas House Elections Committee had refused to schedule a hearing on HB 2280, the bill to eliminate the “primary screen-out”. Happily, he has changed his mind, and set a hearing for Wednesday, April 4. “Primary screen-out” means making it illegal for a primary voter to sign a petition for an independent candidate or a new party.

    The primary screenout makes it a LOT HARDER to petition for ballot access in Texas than it should be.

    The concept of “primary screen-out” is socialistic and hints of an aristocracy. It should have never been created. Karl Marx is dancing on this country’s forefathers’ graves.
