North Carolina Bill Would Let Independent Candidates be “Independent” on the Ballot

North Carolina Representative Mark Brody (R-Matthews) has introduced HB 752, to let independent candidates be called “independent” on the ballot, instead of “unaffiliated.” The bill also says if an independent candidate gets on the ballot, if he or she then runs for the same office again in the following election, no petition would be needed if the candidate’s vote total the first time had been at least twice as many votes as the number of signatures needed.
