On September 23, by an e-mail vote, the Coalition for Free & Open Elections (COFOE) board endorsed HR 3600. That is the bill in Congress that outlaws restrictive ballot access laws for independent candidates for the US House, and for the nominees of unqualified parties for the US House. Activists will be working to get endorsements from other organizations for HR 3600. Congressman Ron Paul is the sponsor of HR 3600. That bill sets a ceiling of 1,000 signatures.
