Nebraska Bill, Expanding Ways for Parties to Remain on Ballot, Passes Committee

On March 15, Nebraska LB 25 passed the Government, Military, and Veterans Affairs Committee unanimously. Existing law says a party remains on the ballot if it polls 5% for any statewide office, at either of the last two elections. The bill adds a second method; it also stays on the ballot as long as it has at least 10,000 registrations. The author of the bill is State Senator Laura Ebke, who is a member of the Libertarian Party. The Libertarian Party has more than 10,000 registered members. Currently it is the only party on the ballot except for the Republican and Democratic Parties.

  1. Well done. At some point, get the 5% reduced to at least 3 %. Any statewide office is doable for 3% especially for a SOS, Auditor, or Treasurer race in a state. WELL DONE on the registration ! I could only hope that Ohio would go to something like this.
