U.S. District Court Sets Oral Argument in Alabama Ballot Access Case in Special Elections

This is the case over ballot access requirements for independents and newly-qualifying parties in special congressional elections. The issue is whether the state must either lower the signatures, or grant a later deadline, in special elections, because the petitioning time in special elections is so much shorter.
