Sixth Circuit Expedites Libertarian Primary Ballot Access Case

On March 21, the Sixth Circuit agreed to expedite Libertarian Party of Ohio v Husted. All the briefs will be in by April 15. As reported in an earlier blog post today, the fact that some primary ballots will have been printed by then will not injure the Libertarian candidates. If they win in the Sixth Circuit in late April, their names can be added to the ballots in the counties that use electronic voting machines, because that just involves reconfiguring the machines, rather than printing paper ballots. Because the three Libertarian Party candidates are each unopposed for the party’s nomination, their vote total doesn’t matter; they just each need one vote in order to be nominated.
