Pennsylvania State Senator Mike Folmer (R-Lebanon) has introduced SB 195, to ease ballot access for minor parties and independent candidates. This is the third session in which he has introduced this bill. It sharply reduces the number of signatures for independent candidates. For minor parties, the law would be similar to the Delaware law, in which a group that persuades a reasonable number of voters to register into the party would be on the November ballot automatically, and would nominate by convention. Thanks to Bob Small for this news. The bill is not yet on the state legislature’s web page.
