The North Carolina legislature re-convened on May 13, and will sit for at least six weeks, possibly eight weeks. If the state court in Raleigh should declare the ballot access laws for new parties unconstitutional, in the next week or so, the legislature will perhaps quickly revise the law. It is somewhat fortunate that the legislature is in session. That will make it somewhat more realistic for the attorneys for the Libertarian and Green Parties to persuade the court to declare the existing law void. The court will thus not need to wrestle with the question of what state policy should be, if the existing law is indeed declared unconstitutional.
