On August 4, Virginia filed this brief in Sarvis v Judd, the Libertarian Party case that argues the Constitution requires Virginia to give every candidate an equal opportunity to obtain the top spot on the general election ballot. The case is Sarvis v Judd, U.S. District Court, 3:14-cv-479. Current law says that only the qualified parties ever enjoy the top line. Virginia defines “party” to be a group that polled at least 10% of the vote in either of the last two previous elections. Virginia’s 10% vote test is tied for being the second most severe vote test in the nation.
