On December 20, the Florida Secretary of State disqualified the Socialist Workers Party, on the grounds that it has not complied with the 2011 law that required all parties to re-qualify. The new law required all parties to again submit a list of party officers, and to furnish certain other information about the party rules. Also, the new rules said that each party must have at least three officers, and that they all must be registered members of that party. The Socialist Workers Party was disqualified for not having submitted a new application.
As the Secretary of State’s letter points out, the party, or any party, is free to re-qualify at any time.
