Oklahoma Senate Passes Bill Making it Easier for a Party to Remain on the Ballot

On March 14, the Oklahoma Senate passed SB 350 by 41-3. It changes the law on how a party remains on the ballot, from polling 2.5% for the office at the top of the ballot (president/governor), to 2.5% for any statewide race, at either of the last two elections. The three “no” votes were two Democrats, Kay Floyd and Anastasia Pittman; and one Republican, Ron Sharp. Thanks to E. Zachary Knight for the news.
